Liebling, A. J.
July 1960
New Yorker;7/9/1960, Vol. 36 Issue 21, p66
The article focuses on Swedish heavyweight boxer Ingemar Johansson. His training regiment does not conform to the teaching of prizefighting professors about unremitting exercise, austere surroundings and general abstinence. His opponent, defending champion Floyd Patterson, on the other hand, was a pattern of orthodoxy in his training method. The better of the two training methods was proven in June 26, 1960 when Johansson knocked out Patterson in three rounds.
