1961

The year is 1961: We pick up our tour through the best decade in the heavyweight championship in Miami, where heavyweight champion Floyd Patterson is preparing for his third fight with Sweden's Johannson. Can Ingo land a bingo? It's a fantastic year for boxing journalists who capture "the paradise of fools" and their fights, politics and theatrics. Liston continues to stalk Patterson, and Casius Clay will have eight fights this year: one on his 19th birthday.
