Re: 'Compassionate Cassius Clay, To Give Big Cat A Chance'
On Cleveland Williams 'second comeback bout, it was versus 6' 3" 233 lb. -
Other files say his record was 13-4-0 (4 KO's) entering that bout.
March 22, 1966 and in Houston, Texas.
The 32 1/2 year-old 212 lb. 'Big Cat' was floored in both the 2nd and 3rd Rounds, by the
'Giant' 233 lb. - Mel Turnbow.
Cleveland started his rally in Round 4, and rocked Turnbow in Round 6. The 'Big Cat'
went on to win a Unanimous 10-Round Decision.
It was apparent to those in attendance, that his right leg had no strength and/or
flexibility to act as a 'shock absorber' for getting hit by hard right hands.
