Cassius Clay... Muhammad Ali....



Item # 566578

November 23, 1965

THE SPRINGFIELD UNION, Massachusetts, November 23, 1965 

* Cassius Clay  
* Muhammad Ali 
* Floyd Patterson
* Heavyweight boxing title fight
 

This 44 page newspaper has a three column headline on the front page: "Clay Wins on TKO in 12th" with subheads and action photo. (see)

Also a nice banner headline on page 34 reads: "Clay Keeps Heavyweight Title With TKO in 12th" with subheads and two more related photos. (see) Loads of text here.

Other news of the day throughout. Nice condition.

wikipedia notes: On November 22, 1965, Ali fought Floyd Patterson in his second title defense. Patterson lost by technical knockout at the end of the 12th round. As would later occur with Ernie Terrell, many sportswriters accused Ali of "carrying" Patterson so that he could physically punish him without knocking him out. Ali countered that Patterson, who said his punching prowess was limited when he strained his sacroiliac, was not as easy to down as may have appeared.
