PATTERSON KOed IN FIRST ROUND

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

A very confident Sonny Liston took the heavyweight championship of the world from Floyd Patterson last night in just 2:06 minutes of the first round with an awesome barrage of body blows that tore the defending champion apart. Weighing twenty-five pounds more than his opponent, the immense Liston never gave anyone the idea that he was going to lose. He missed a couple of tremendous swings against the quicker person as the round opened. After 2:00 minutes, however, he connected with a short right to the head, putting the former champ off balance.

Liston then started raking Patterson's body with lefts, and the New Yorker began to crumble. The overpowering body blows of the exconvict signaled the finish, and a left to the temple ended the fight.
