Painful Retreat from Olympia

What happens to old, misguided Olympic champions? In London, Pete Rademacher, who fights like a man pushing and mauling his way through a rush-hour subway train, was knocked out in the seventh round by Brian London (left) who can't lick Ingemar Johansson's sister (says Ingo). In Charlotte, N.C., Paul Anderson, 290-pound weight lifter and professional wrestler, gave up in the third round of his first prizefight. Snorting like an asthmatic rhinoceros, Paul told the ref, "I've had it."
