hang 'em up
FEW moments in sports history can be recalled after a week
or two. After several years, forget it. It's all just not very
important. Only those events which detonate genuine emotion
stick with us.
That's the reason I recall so vividly November 22, 1965, the
night Floyd Patterson was humiliated by Muhammad Ali in one
of the cruelest mismatches of all time.
Patterson, at 21 the youngest man ever to win the heavy-
weight crown, was battered unmercifully by the champion.
Fighting with a painful muscle spasm in his back, Patterson
was a pathetic figure between rounds as his trainers virtually
carried him to his stool.
The eventual winner had been determined after the first
round or two. But Ali, angered by his foe's personal pre-fight
remarks, had a score to settle. After nearly 12 rounds, with
Patterson senseless and fighting by instinct alone, the debacle
was halted.
That was the scene almost seven years ago. Tonight the same
two men fight again. Someone should stop it.
Anybody with an ounce of boxing sense realizes that when
a man is seven years older, 20 pounds lighter, has a nine inch
shorter reach, and is infinitely slower than his opponent, he's
in for a beating. And deep down, Floyd Patterson, age 37,
weight 195, reach 71 inches, wnows it.
In 1965 he said, "I was a champion. I was a good champion,
and I know I am nearing the end."
Yet a month ago this very intelligent and thoughtful man
told an interviewer: "If I was positively sure I'd get this bout
next year, I'd wait. I'll be better at 38 or 39 than at 37. I feel
better now than I did five years ago. Since I've started my come-
back two years ago, I've improved every fight.
His self-delusion can be explained easily enough. Patter-
son once said, "Even if I lost something I wouldn't accept it.
A fighter never admits to age." But the larger question re-
mains. Why does he fight on?
For most fighters, money is the sole reason they box.
Although Patterson is guaranteed $100,000, his motives definitely
run deeper. Since the late Sonny Liston scored his first of two
first round knockouts over the ex-champ, Patterson has struggled
a decade to erase the lingering memory of that night in Chicago.
It showed in their second bout. Patterson admittedly had
been fearful of Liston. Deeply ashamed, he decided to slug
toe-to-toe with his immense foe-and was obliterated.
Friends see Patterson as a funny and gracious man. But
after defeat he becomes reticent and oblique, somehow making
himself believe that his close friends have instinctively turned
against him. Thus, the Patterson of the dark glasses and dis-
guises emerges. Patterson has always felt that he is indebted to
boxing. "Who is to say what I would actually be if it wasn't for
fighting," he quietly says. "A truck driver? A bum?"
A far better question would be to ask where the decrepit
sport of boxing would be if it had not had the decency and
professionalism of Patterson for the past 15 years.
Even the New York promo men are having a difficult time
selling Patterson's chances to the public. What can they say after
no betting line has been issued for the bout? The last time that
happened may have been for the Ali-Brian London farce a few
years ago.
Patterson has been played up as a comeback fighter who
has won nine straight. True, he did decision the brawling
Argentinian, Oscar Bonavena. But the other wins have come at
the expense of such nonentities as Pedro Agosto and Roger
In their need to write something about the fight, the
Associated Press commissioned former "white" hope Jerry
Quarry, Ali's one-time punching bag, to preview the bout.
"I'll go with Ali, but Floyd should extend him and really
make him work," babbled Quarry.
Patterson really deserves much better than to have his career
degenerate to this. He has come from an emotionally disturbed
childhood to an Olympic gold medal to the heavyweight champion-
ship. The fourth stage, that of a washed-up old pug drowning in
dreams and memories, is upon him.
Patterson has faced both defeat and victory in his time.
Now it's time to face up to age.
Hopefully, tonight will be his last stand.

As an Evelyn Wood graduate, you'll be

At 1,000 words per minute, you'll be
able to read a text book like Hofstadtler's

At 2,000 words per minute, you'll be

At 3,000 words per minute, yoU'll be
