Default Re: Cassius Clay vs. Alonzo Johnson 'A Kentucky Flop'

"Cassius Clay Defeats Alonzo Johnson"

Cassius Clay won a Unanimous Decision, but it was not entirely popular, as
many in attendance boo'ed when the Decision was announced.

The bout had some 'brisk moments', but neither fighter packed a punch,
and there were times of amateurish slapping. Cassius' best punches of
the fight came from his right hand, while Alonzo Johnson showed a decent
left hook to the body.

The first 4-Rounds, were closely fought, with neither fighter taking control.
Cassius was most effective in Round 5, when he was able to land some fairly
decent right hands. But, Alonzo came back to have a solid 6th Round, by
landing good left hooks.

Cassius did take control in Round 7, but Alonzo stayed right in front of
him, by putting pressure on him.

Alonzo Johnson was the on the canvas '3-Times', but each visit was ruled as
a proper slip.

Cassius did show plenty of 'whiz, but little 'bang', as the Freedom Hall fans
boo'ed continously through the last 3-Rounds.
