Patterson Ends Training
For Johanson Contest
Italian Defeated at Wimbledon
By JACK HAND
Associated Press Sports Writer
CHATHAM, N. J., ()-Heavy-
weight Champion Floyd Patterson
yesterday finished his training for
Thursday night's title bout with
Ingemar Johansson with another
two-round workout in his steam-
ing indoor gym.
Trainer Dan Florio had to cau-
tion the 24-year-old -champion
several times to ease up when he
started to batter his sparmates;
Patterson appeared on edge and
eager for action. In one round
against Bill Tate of Chicago, a
heavy middleweight, Patterson
cut loose with a hard right and
staggered his opponent.
"Whoa, take it easy," yelled
Florio from the side of the ring.
When Lew Jones of Rockford, Ill.,
climbed through the ropes for his
one - round outing the champ"
slammed hard at the body. Jones,
a 195 pounder, threw a right hand
lead in the style of Johansson's
reported knockout style and Pat-
terson scored to the head with a
left hand over the right.
He then unleashed a nine-
punch body barrage, grunting
while he whaled away with both
hands until Florio yelled "ease
Patterson also showed that he
has not discarded his much criti-
cized "gazelle" punch - a leap-
ing right hand lead. the champ
threw the "gazelle"dat Jones just
before thebell ended his active
In sharp contrast to the chal-
lenger who finished boxing Satur-
day and did his last roadwork
Thursday, Patterson will run 4V2
miles this morning and will loosen
up briefly in the gymnasium.
Wednesday morning he also Will
go on the road before coming into
New York City where he will rest
until Thursday's weigh-in.
Florio said Patterson was "100
per cent better now" than he was
Patterson, perspiring f r e e l y,
said he had no fixed battle plan.
"Everybody says he's supposed to
be a great right hand puncher,"
he said, "but how do I know?
Maybe his left hand is his best
punch. I will be ready for any-
thing. Despite what everybody,
says, I think the London fightj

Earl Buchholz, Jr. of St. Louis,
the youthful American Davis Cup
player who was a sensation in
Australian tennis last December,
brought off the big upset of the
first round of the Wimbledon
Championships yesterday when
he defeated third-seeded Nicola
Pitrangeli of Italy. The scores
were 6-4, 3-6, 7-5, 7-5.
Buchholz, though one of two
"official" American representa-
tives in the tournament, was not
seeded. Pietrangeli, winner of the
French championship this year,
was rated behind only Alex Ol-
medo of Peru - the other official
U. S. representative - and Neale
Fraser of Australia.
In a somewhat lesser upset, Jon
Douglas, a former Stanford foot-
ball player from Santa Monica,
Calif., gained a 4-6, 6-1, 6-1, 6-0
victory over Budge Patty of Los
Angeles and Paris, the 1950 Wim-
Buchholz, a lean and lanky
youngster, showed maturity well
beyond his 18 years in defeating
Europe's best and most exper-
ienced player although he dropped
the second set, the American al-
ways looked better than the
stocky Italian, who was playing
far below his best form.
It was the only break in the
seedings as Fraser, Britain's Bob-
by Wilson (No. 4), Barry MacKay
of Dayton, Ohio (No. 5), the only
seeded American; Denmark's Kurt
Nielsen (No. 7), and Australia's
Roy Emerson (No. 8) won handily
in early matches.
Other American winners in the
first round included 45-year-old
Gardnar Mulloy of Miami, Fla.,
Jack Frost of Monterey, Calif.,
Myron Franks of Los Angeles and
Malcolm Fox of Baltimore.
Yesterday's play, which drew an
unusually large opening day
crowd, was limited to men's
Pietrangeli, the mainstay of.
Italy's Davis Cup team for some
years, started off the match well.
He pulled out three service and a
smash to take the first game.
Then he went to pieces.
Afterthat game his first service
never clicked and his second never!
was strong enough to cause Buch-
holz any trouble, although he did
pull out the second set.
Couldn't Place Shots
Pietrangeli's difficulty was in
trying to place his shots beyond
the elastic reach of the St. Louis
youngster, top in the U.S. junior
rankings and ninth in the senior
Buchholz came through his
baptism to center court fire like
a veteran. He impressed the ex-
perts here last year when he won
the Junior Wimbledon and his
game yesterday had the gallery
talking in glowing terms about
his chances for the senior crown
within the next two years.
From the start Pietrangeli tried
to play the dainty game against
the pwoer-hitting American, but
he never found his touch. Time
and again he hit the net or vol-
leyed just out when, at his best
form, he could have scored win-
Douglas, on his first interna-
tional tour, has an easy victory
over Patty after a wel-played first
set. He gained a key service break
in the second game of the second
set and thereafter dominated the

Patterson boxed. 103 rounds
during his 4 -week tuneup drill
for the unbeaten European cham-
pion from Sweden. During the
early stages he floored several of
his sparring partners but eased up
in the last few days.
The champion was down to 180
pounds last night after boxing in
stifling heat. After a three and
one-half mile jaunt on the road
this morning he was back up to
183 pounds. He expects to come
into the ring Thursday night in
Yankee Stadium between 181 and
183 pounds. In his fourth defense
May 1 at Indianapolis against
Brian London he weighed 182%,
giving away 25 pounds.
