Frank Moran Confident of Great Victory
By PRANK MORAN
I realize that there are many fight fans who think that I will not win
tonight, but take it from me, I am in the best shape of my career and
that means I am going to win. I do not say that I will knock Willard out,
but I would not be surprised if I did turn the trick in the Garden ring. At
any rate, there will be a new champion tonight and I will be the one to
have that honor.
