The Rock-itt : March 2011
out of towner to don his cloves. Errol expected the rules of boxing to prevail even in a country town and thought he would go to the middle to meet his opponent, touch gloves and the bout begin. But when time was called to commence and Errol walked into the middle to face Cowper, unexpectedly, Cowper swung with a right cross which sent Errol down like a ton of bricks onto the canvas. A roar of disapproval immediately came from the crowd at Cowper’s foul deed and as Errol gingerly got to his feet to take the count of 7 the crowd cheered,..... now they were in his corner. Errol ducked, dodged and weaved to try and stay on his feet until the end of the round when he could get back to his corner and get his second wind. When he reached his stool, Rex was waiting with a wet towel and some spiriting advice as to how Errol could win. But Errol had his back up and was ready for revenge and with the crowd now firmly behind him, waited for the bell to ring for round 2. When the striker hit the bell for round 2, Jack Cowper came flying across the ring to what he thought was to finish Errol off. But this time Errol was ready and came up with a lightning fast right hook which just missed Cowper’s chin but on the way through the lace from his glove opened a deep gash over his opponent’s eye which immediately began to bleed profusely. Catching Cowper off guard, Errol tore into him with all of his might with the crowd cheering him on as he pummelled his opponent with lefts, rights and upper cuts, finally giving the ex-champ such a hiding that he retired at the end of the second round unable to continue. Rex collected the five pound winner’s purse and Errol was cheered as a hero as he left the tent under the unhappy gaze of the fight promoter.
