Yet you'll search th e Ne w York rule book for weeks to find any mention of such a thing as a TK.O. Referee Goldstein said he stopped It under Section 3 of the rules, empowering referees "to stop a bout or contest at any stage and make a decision If he considers it too one- sided," The 5,152 fans who paid $16,333 knew only what. Johnny Addle, the official announcer, told them: "The referee is of the opinion that Livio Minelli was no match for Johnny Saxton and awards the decision to Saxton." , Actually it wasn't too Important, except to folks who might hive bet on the ending. And that's supposed to be again' the law. It pointed up again the need for a brisk revision of the rule book to cover confusing sudden endings.
