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

The Joplin-Herald

'Feet Not Made Of Clay'

Sometimes a body can get pretty sick of home, but in Cassius Clay's case,
thankfully he stayed close to Freedom Hall, and compassionate judges.

Cassius Clay is lean, but that's about all we can say about this 19 year-old
Heavyweight. In Saturday Night's bout, Cassius looked like a 'hungry cat trapped in a barrel'.

The Joplin-Herald has never been so disappointed in 'highly promoted fighter'. He showed
absolutely nothing, and unless this kid learns something, and quick, somebody is going
to plant him like a tent pole.

Most of the other professional boxers who watched, just shook their heads and stated,
that he 'looked like a glorified amateur'. And Alonzo Johnson, the Pittsburg Heavyweight,
after getting over his initial amazement, finally realized that this kid had nothing and went
after him after giving him a couple of rounds.
