Re: Cassius Clay vs. Alonzo Johnson 'A Kentucky Flop'
Easy, T Booze,
Lets not make out like Alonzo Johnson was some kind of monster,,,,,,
The guy couldn't punch, as he was a certified 'feather-fisted boxer'.
Now, by mid-1959 Alonzo looked like a 'prospect' by going 16-1-0 (5 KO's), but
since that time he had gone 2-6-0 in his last '8-bouts', and Alonzo had only '2-bouts'
in the past year.
And little Alonzo was only a 6' 0" 180 lb. fighter, and he had to fight at Heavyweight
to make any 'money'.
If that bout was held anywhere but Louisville, Alonzo gets the Decision 47-46 (4-3-3 in Rounds).
