(AP)— Coil- centralion can give Floyd Patterson a victory in his rematch with heavyweight champion Sonny Lisbon, veteran fight handler Cus D'Arnato says. D'Amato, who guided, Patterson n most of his fights, thinks the challenger will turn the tables on Liston here July 22 and regain the title. "Patterson was a distracted fighter when Lislon kayoed him ast September," D'Amato said. 'He made one fundamental mis- .ake. Instead of hitting and getting out of there, and instead of raying in close after he went in for the in-fighting, Floyd got caught just standing there doing nothing." D'Amato said Patterson told him in the dressing room after the fight that he felt out Liston to see what he could do ai.d discovered that he wasn't as strong as he anticipated "and then i got caught with those left hooks." "Liston is a very good fighter, as good as anybody in an era," said D'Amato, "but so is Patterson, and all he needs to do is to concentrate on his job this time." D'Amato was not in Patterson's corner in the last fight, and if lie is to handle the challenger in this one he will have to get a license from the Slate Athletic Commission. could prove disastrous for the Cubs. 6 Illinoisans Are Still ti In Public Links Open 1 SACRAMENTO, Calif.
