                   FROM THE BOOKS
   When Frazier fought Buster Mathis on March 4, 1968, he was determined to clear any hint of tarnish from his Olympic medal. (Before Frazier went to Tokyo, he had won thirty-eight of forty fights. His two losses had been to Mathis in the Olympic trials. When Mathis had broken a knuckle, Frazier had substituted.)
   "Smokin' Joe flattened Mathis with a left hook in 2:33 of the eleventh round.
