NEW YORK apL Fis'nt pro
moter Vincent J. Velella taies
the "hot seat" again today at the
New York state Athletic Commis
sion's million-dollar hearing.
Veklla is trying to survive the
torrid grilling of Commission
Counsel James P. Fusscas so tha:
the license for his promoting or
ganization Rosensohn Enterprises.
Inc. will rot be revoked.
The license was suspendel re
cently, pending this hearing, be
cause of alleged underworld in-filt-ation
into the promotion of the
June 28 Johansson-Patterson heav
yweight title fight.
Velella hopes to promote Inge
mar Johansson's defense of the
crown against ex-champion Floyd
Patterson next year, which may
produce gross receipts of between
$3,000,000 and $5,000,000.
But Sweden's Johansson, who
wants to defend in New York,
might break away from Velella's
outfit, were it banned permanent
ly from promoting in New York
Fusscas is trying to prove that
attorney Velella Harlem politi
cian and new president of the
Rosensohn organization is "front
ing" for the missing Harlen
mobster, Anthony ( Fat Tony ) Sa
lerno. Velella admitted he had noticed
mobster Salerno hovering about
during at least five meetings con
nected with the Johansson-Patterson
promotion; but he did not
question the "policy" king because
he thought Salerno was present
- V w . a r
I a couple more fights to decide
ized shaoe Johansson naa mm in
that night in Yankee Stadium.
Ingo Threw Best Punch
"It's terribly difficult to ' rate
Johansson as a champion, Ruby
explained. "So he knocked Patter
son out with seven knockdowns in
the thiid round. But actually, it
was the first real round of the
fight. Those first two rounds were
nothing as they felt each other
out. Then, as Patterson onened
his gloves from that peek-a-boo
defense, Johansson clouted him
ith the best punch of the fight.
"It was.'', Goldstein added, "a
terrific surprise. And Patterson
never got over that first punch.
Of the remaining six knockdowns,
you might -say that two of them
were good. The other four knock
downs were the result of awk
ward punches for Johansson threw
a lot of awkward and sloppy
punches in his eagerness." ''
Dempsey, Louis or Marciano
wouldn't have been "so eager,"
says Ruby, whose book, appro
priately titled "The Third Man
In The Ring," hits the bookstalls
on Oct. 15. ' ' j
Put-Away Shot Certain r
"If they had Patterson in s'uch
a shape," he insists, "they wtfuld
have sent over ' the shot which
put him away for keeps." '
Goldstein, who had "70-odd"
fights himself in the pro ring,
was the "third man" in the ring
in title bouts involving Louis,
Marciano. Jersey Joe Walcott and
Ezzard Charles, as well as Pat
terson and Johansson, and it is
evident in talking to him that he
considers Louis the greatest -of
the lot. ':!
"I refereed the Louis-Marciano
bout," he recalls of the night that
"the Rock" kayoed the once
mighty Brown Bomber. "It was
a sad thing. Sure. Louis always
was bqthered by those low
crouching opponents but he al
ways took care of them, as he
did against Arturo Godoy, Tommy
Farr and Tony Galento. Marciano

a while, but in his prime' he
