  • Description

    Floyd Patterson, the
    former world heavy-weight champion, will have a weight advantage of
    one-and-a-quarter pounds over the British and Empire champion Henry Cooper in
    their ten round fight at the Empire Pool, Wembley tonight.

    The two fighters weighed in at a London gymnasium and Patterson was first on the
    scales.

    Then Henry Cooper stepped on to the scales.

    Cooper needs a win in tonight's fight to take him forward to a match with
    Germany's Karl Mildenberger for the European title. Mildenberger has announced
    he is willing to meet the winner of tonight's bout, but the fight will almost
    certainly remove the loser from the list of contenders for Cassius Clay's title.
