Default Re: Amos Johnson 'How I Beat Cassius Clay'

'Atom Amos' Johnson,

After his 30-month 'Tour of Duty',

24 1/2 year-old - 'Atom Amos' left Stockton, California for northern-Ohio (Medina),
and returned to boxing in October 1963.

Fighting out of Akron, Ohio - 'Atom Amos' scored a win in his 'first'
comeback fight, but in his 'second bout' on November 19, 1963 - he was
Decisioned (L Dec 10) by his old amateur friend 'Cincinnati Star' Billy Joiner.

Too 'bulked up' at 203 lbs. 'Atom Amos' dropped some weight, and went back to
down to the sleeker 192 lbs.
