Tiiis is boxing in the electronic age. The flesh and blood battlers] --heavyweight champion Floydj Patterson and Ingemar Johansson --- are hundreds of miles! away in Miami Beach, Fla. At the Gai-den, top glamor palace of American sport which came into being in the first! place as a showplace for box p - ing, Floyd and Ingo share the billing with th? likes of Joey Adams, Henry Youngman and Bobby Davrin.
