Re: Amos Johnson 'How I Beat Cassius Clay'
M & M,
Here it is,
Thurday Night - August 27, 1964
'Atom Amos' Johnson 16-2-1 (7 KO's)
Chip Johnson 13-5-0 (11 KO's)
Chip Johnson, a 6' 2" 190 lb. 'southpaw' Heavyweight from Naples, Florida
floors 'Atom Amos' Johnson 'three times' in the 1st Round, and scores a
'major upset' 1st Round Knockout.
The 23 year-old - Chip Johnson, a Cassius Clay sparring partner, is a wild-swinging
Heavyweight, with a 'jaw-breaking' left hook.
The 25 1/2 year-old, 6' 3" 195 lb. Johnson (Medina, Ohio), had never been floored (amateur or
professional) in a career that spans 9-years.
Chip Johnson staggered the slow-starting Amos Johnson with a vicious left upper-cut
moments into the bout, then went on an all-out blitz, scoring a '3-Knockdown' Knockout
at 2:02 of the 1st-Round.
