Default Re: 'Compassionate Cassius Clay, To Give Big Cat A Chance'

November 1966

'The Chronicle'

'Boxing pundits, regard the Cassius Clay vs. Cleveland Williams 'Heavyweight Championship' as a 'joke'.

With no disrespect to the 'Big Cat', he in no way qualifies as a Top 10 Heavyweight. The 33 year-old,
and his comeback from a severe gunshot wound is courageous. But the 'Big Cat' has not proven that
he is worthy of a Championship, based upon '4' wins over a completely inadequate group of opponents.

Though Mr. Williams still carries a dangerous weapon, his left hand, the Houston-based Heavyweight has
weakened legs, and his ability to take a good punch has left him faster than a quick-cat chasing a mouse.

Don't expect too much in his fight with Champion, as Cleveland will go crashing to the canvas with the
first punch that lands on his chin. Everybody in the Houston Astrodome will be out of their seats by the
4th Round, and be heading home to catch the nightly news on television.
