Municipal police, who were among those on the platform, moved in and pushed Clay's arm downward. Sugar Ray Robinson, former welterweight champion, tried valiantly to calm down the impassioned Clay but had little success. An attending physician reported that Clay's pulse was in excess of 100 beats a minute while Liston was perfectly normal. Trickle Of Customers BIG NIGHT TONIGHT — This is a corrected "tale-of-the- tape" for the world heavyweight championship bout in of i Friends estimate MacDonald may lose S500.000 because the original cost and promotional expenses will top SS0O.00O. A poll of 58 U.S. and foreign sports writers covering the fight disclosed 55 picking Liston, all by a knockout. Of the three who favored the pretentious, 22-year-old challenger from Louisville, only one said he would score a knockout over the 30-year-old champion from Denver, Colo. Sonny, with long, muscular arms terminating in 15'i inch fists, is favored at 7-1 to win. It's even money that he scores a knockout within five rounds and 2-1 that he achieves a kayo within 10. MacDonald May Lose Another man who is practically certain to take a licking There was only a trickle ofjj n this fight is Bill MacDonald, customers at the box office lo cated at the Convention Hall. It appeared that the receipts for tonight's 15-round bout would not exceed $450,000. which would mean that promoter Bill MacDonald would absorb a $400,000 loss. However, the closed circuit television of the bout promised to total between $4 million and $5 million, which would set a new record in boxing history. Officials of the Theater Network Television said they already have sold 800,000 of the million seats available throughout the United States and Canada. They were scheduled for 15 financial backer of the "live' fight here and co-promoter with Chris Dundee. MacDonald, a wealthy re tired auto-trailer manufacturer, "bought" the fight from Intercontinental Promotions, Inc.. for $625,000. But in an attempt to draw $1,100,000 in the 16,448 seat Convention Hall, he priced the tickets from $20 to $250, a record anywhere for fight seats. Because of the seat prices and Clay's amateurish showing in his late workouts and his reported connections with the Black Muslims, the advance sale here has been a "bust. Fraley says it looks like Liston to him, but then ... By OSCAR FRALEY MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (UPI) —Sonny Liston defends the heavyweight championship of the world against Cassius Clay tonight — in five rounds. It could be quicker. It could even go the other way because the best thing going for gaseous Cassius is the fact that Fearless Fraley picks Liston. But from this seat I'd have to figure that Clay has as much chance as a tuxedo at a nudist convention. Yon Cassius could make suckers out of all of "experts" when they start putting the boffo on each other. Because with Clay. They claim he drops his hands when trying to slip a punch, weaving backward with a suicidal invitation to a fast two step and a right hand punch. It must be admitted that he has trained like a fellow who is shooting for the Olympic marathon title. He has run more miles backward than a switch engine and hardly ever drawn a deep breath. Vet it could be payoff strategy. Cassius gave it plenty of get up and go, concentrating on boxing in the manner of a guy with two glass hands. All he was after was a bob and there are a number of impon-| weave and a shuffle off to Buf- derables when it comes to the business at hand. You can write off Cassius as a loud mouth of little hope and you've got more company than a South Philadelphia paddy wagon. Cassius Solid, Fast But.. . In sizing him up, don't forget that at six feet, three inches he is two inches taller than Liston. On top of that, there isn't a great difference in weight. Cassius is a solid 215- pounder who will only give away a few pounds and he moves with the rapidity of a guy who is all busted out come the first of the month and is trying to stay two jumps ahead of the bill collectors. There is, also, the fact that he has trained much harder for this cmbroglio than has Liston. The sometimes sunny Sonny has shuffled complacently through three to six rounds of boxing, skipped rope, done calisthenics and let trainer Willie Reddish hit him in the tummy with a medicine ball daily. This latter proves, of course, that a medicine ball will never be champion of the world. Plans One Round "Why train too hard for just one round," Liston demanded with airy truculence. The cauliflower critics on the whole have been unimpressed falo that might leave Liston a panting, tired out target if they ever get along toward rounds 13 to 15. Has Experience You can knock the fact that he has had only 19 pro fights, even if you C2n 't ignore the added evidence that he has won them all. Plus the fact, it might be added, that he had 10S bouts in the amateurs which means he has boxed every style in the book and some that aren't. Yep, all this would seem to give him quite a chance. But I always close my eyes and sec that first round at Las Vegas when Floyd Patterson sledged Liston with a nifty right hand on the button. Liston was coming into it, too. AU that happened was that he seemed to swell up like a barrage balloon. Then he advanced on Patterson with the ponderous menace of a runaway cement mixer and poor Floyd had as much chance as Shirley Temple. Seconds later it was all over. That's why this one may go five heats. I don't think Cassius will dare make Liston mad by throwing a punch until that late in the evening. But once he hits the big man, Katy bar the door. It'll be the only way of keeping Cassius in town if he wants to stay erect. combinations his punches are thrown with comparatively loose arms that do not deliver his body weight The crowd is expected to ap- to the target, proximate 10,000. The challenger is 1' 2 inches Reports Heavy Sale taller than Liston's 6-1. But the Conversely. Nathan L.

But Liston never hit Hal-i pern, president of Theatre Network Television (TNT), reported today a "landslide" sale of tickets at many of the 271 locations for closed circuit television of the fight in the United States and Canada. Clay, Olympic light heavyweight champion in 1960, seeks his 20th straight victory since his professional victory string, Cassius made but few changes in the style he used as an amateur — pulling away from straight punches and hooks instead of slipping the straight ones and bobbing beneath the head hooks. Clay is very fast on his feet: also speedy with jabs and with Angels on bicycles in Palm Springs PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (UPI) — The Los Angeles Angels mounted their bicycles today and got into the full swing of spring training. The Angels rode the bikes the three miles from their hotel to the stadium and will do so throughout their training. In Monday's workout, the pitchers held a scrimmage of their own. With Bo Belinsky managing one team and Dean Chance at the helm of the other, they played to a 15-15 tie. The big gun of the game was Bill Kelso, a converted catcher, who slammed three home runs. Shortstop Jim Fregosi, who was hit in the right shoulder blade Monday when Belinsky was practicing his pick-off motion before the game, was expected to be back in uniform today. The only players who were not at the session today were outfielder Bob Terry, who will report Wednesday, and first baseman Joe Adcock, who is to report March 1. NBA Standings Eastern Division W. L.

Powerful Left Hook Sonny has the most devastating left hook in the ring today. He also has a dangerous but somewhat ponderous straight right to the head and a feet-lifting right uppercut to the chin. He also is so rugged it seems one could hit him on the chin with a sledge hammer without making him blink. In Liston's only defeat in his 36 bouts.
