However, it was mild bellowing compared to the controversial clamor that accompanied his first defense of the heavyweight crown. The unbeaten Louisville Lip scored the fastest knockout in the history of heavyweight championship fighting when he flattened Sonny Liston in one minute flat Tuesday night with the help of a confused knockdown timekeeper and a startled referee. In their first fight at Miami Beach, Fla., 15 months ago, Liston surrendered his crown to Clay while sitting on his stool between the sixth and seventh rounds. The finish to the rematch was even more weird —and was being compared to the Dempsey - Tunney "long count" of 1927. Only 4.280 fans at the Central Maine Youth Center—the smallest turnout for a heavyweight title brawl in history— saw it "Uve." However, it was witnessed by millions on television around the world. Sequence Of Events And like many r'mgsiders. there must have been many who wondered actually what happened. Here's a sequence of the events which led up to all the confusion: Clay caught Liston with a short right to the chin. Big Sonny stumbled backwards — actually it appeared he had slipped — and landed flat on his back. As he lay there, Liston did not appear to be hurt—or even slurmed. Standing over him was Clay hollering, "get up, get up" like a man gone mad. However, like a man suddenly grown old, Liston rolled off his back onto all fours, col- CBL Champion Chaffey high scored their second win in CIF Four members of Redlands|AAA bascbaU playoffs with a 4-2 high Terrier swimming team victory over Hueneme in John were notified yesterday that tliey Galvin Park, had been placed on the Nation- The Tigers now advance to the al High school A!l-American CIF quarter-finals at El Monte swimming team, coach B o b^ Friday.

A crowd of 1,400 paying customers booed and angrily insisted that the heavyweight championship fight they saw on live television at the San Bernardino Orange Show last night wasn't on the up and up. The knockout punch that Cassius Clay threw looked like a light tap, most ring-wise observers agreed. Archie Moore, former light- heavyweight champion, agreed with the shocked and suspicious on-lookers at the Exhibit building. "I don't really believe Clay can hit that hard," Moore told the audience. The pay-tv crowd, about 95 per cent male, paid 56.50 and S5 per seat. "Nobody asked for their money back—I can't understand it," commented promoter Bob Lewis of Riverside.

Referee Joe Walcott, a former heavyweight champion, was trying to lead Clay back to a neutral corner—and not succeeding. Meanwhile the knockdown timekeeper, Francis McDonough of Portland, Maine, bad started to count. Finally Walcott bent down to pick up the count but by this time Liston was back on his feet. When Walcott turaed toward McDonough. Clay and Listen started tossing punches again. Now there was complete chaos. Handlers in Clay's corner were hollering that Liston had been counted out. Several more seconds elapsed before Walcott finally stepped in and declared Clay the winner. While Clay's handlers tossed him in the air, Liston stood with a blank look on his face. Walcott. too, looked mighty con fused. Explained Jersey Joe: "I was too busy getting Clay back to a neutral corner and didn't realize the man (McDonough) had counted out Liston. When I finally came back to pick up the count, the timekeeper told me he had reached 12."

Other AL Action Elsewhere in the .American League, Cleveland beat New York 5-1; Detroit stopped Chicago 7-5; Baltimore bested Kansas City 6-3; and Washington took two from Los Angeles, 7-3 and 6-5. In the National League, Los Angeles blanked St. Louis, 2-0. on Don Drysdale's one-hitter; Cincinnati topped Houston 7-4; Philadelphia walloped the Mets 10-3; Pittsburgh edged Chicago in 12 innings; 7-6; and Milwaukee beat San Francisco, 14-1. The fireworks started in the fourth inning with Minnesota Bill Monhouquette was the victim of the initial onslaught and was charged with his fourth defeat in nme decisions. Cleveland's Vic Davalillo. who says "I don't know where my power comes from" knocked in four runs with two homers off Jim Bouton. The 5-foot-7. 150- pounder gave winner Sonny Siebert. now 5-2, a one-run lead m the second and climaxed a four- run rally in the sixth with a roundtripper with two aboard. Fred Whitfield opened the inning with his seventh homer of the season. Detroit sent Chicago down to its fifth loss in six games on a 10-hit attack led by Al Kaline's two triples. The .AU-Star right- fielder drove in what proved to be the winning run in the seventh with his second three-bag­ ger and scored an insurance tally on Bill Freehan's single.

But Gene was alloweij to contmue fighting and went on to win on a decision. The "hve" audience in St. Dom's Arena Tuesday nishi hooped and hollered "fix" when the decision was announced. Some had paid SlOO 10 watch it — and there is nothing that can anger a fight fan more than when he realizes he might have sat in on a miscarriage of justice. Anchor Punch" Clay called the kayo blow he used "the anchor punch'' and claims it was the "big secret" he had prepared for this rematch. It was first used by Jack Johnson, Clay revealed, and was taught him by Sleiiin Fetchit. the old retired movie actor who had been a close friend of Johnson. "It's a punch so fast you can't see it." the 23-year-old champion said. That could be true. Many at ringside missed the punch, and this was another rca.son why the fans hollered "fix." Liston. though, admitted he saw it—"partially." "It was a fair punch ... it surprised me," said big Sonny, who had hoped to become the second man in history to win back the heavyweight crown. Liston confirmed he hadn't been hurt by the blow. But he, too, bad become confused and didn't know the count. Up to the point of the knockout, Liston was forcing the fight and was trading punches with Clay on a fairly even basis. Unequalled Confusion But Clay, who weighed 2(i5 pounds lo Lislon's 215>i. then uncorked that short, right that produced confusion perhaps unequalled in ring history. Forgotten in the excitement were the reported thrents that Clay would be lucky to leave the ring alive. He was supposed to be a marked man—a target for revenge-seeking members of the Black Nationalist movement. He might still be. However, nothing approaeliin,s violence took place Tiies-dtiy night at old St. Dom's. The police, to be .sure, took all precautions to trevent any trouble. They even searched womcn'.s handbags at the door and halted all persons carrjdng packages for inspection. Clay seemed satisfied with the police protection. He wasn't in much of a hurry to leave the arena—or even the ring. In the midst of all the knockout excitement, he shouted to Patterson at ringside. "You're next, rabbit, you're next." It's likely that Cl;iy will give Patterson his third crack at the title—perhaps later this year. End Of Road .•^s for Liston. he appears In have reached Uie end of the road. Former champion Joe Lnui.s also was at ringside and su2- gested "Sonny should quit now." He added the thought lhat this latest Clay-Liston em- broglio "sure didn't do boxing any good."
