The professional debut of Olympic Light Heavyweight Gold medallist Cassius Clay at Freedom Hall in his native Louisville, Kentucky.
Tunney Hunsaker was a 30-year-old part-time boxer and police officer from Fayetteville, West Virginia.
Clay won every round and Hunsaker ended the fight with his left eye swollen shut and blood pouring from his nose.
Hunsaker said afterwards "He's awfully good for an 18-year-old and as fast as a middleweight."
Scores: Paul Matchuny 30-19 | Sidney Baer 30-24 | Walter Beck 30-23.
