Associated Press | July 23, 1961

Cassius Clay, a newcomer to the professional ranks, scored a unanimous 10-round decision Saturday night over veteran Alonzo Johnson in a nationally televised fight.

Clay, indifferent through the early rounds, finally went to work in the ninth and tenth and had his opponent hanging on at the end of the fight in Freedom Hall before approximately 6,000 fans.

The victory ran Clay's record to 8-0 and left Johnson with a 19-8 mark.

Clay, the former Olympic light heavyweight champion, came in at 192½ pounds while Johnson weighed 189.

At the time Cassius Clay still had the frame of a teenager, he controlled every round but probably would have put Johnson away around the 7th if he would have had his man strength. Still complete shutout imo for what was mostly a ho-hum performance from a very young soon to be Muhammad Ali.
