Discusses Muhammad Ali and Lorenzo Zanon.

They both signed tentative agreements in March 1977.
After Zanon upset WBA #6 Alfredo Evangilista in February 1977.

Lorenzo Zanon signed a tentative agreement, but Don King could not meet Zanon's
financial requests.

That match was cancelled, and Evangilista was slid in, when he agreed to the smaller fight purse.

Mumammad Ali also had a tentative agreement with Mike Schutte
for February 1977.

Remember, Ali retired in October 1976, but un-retired and retired
about a dozen times in late-1976 and early-1977......
Interesting, thanks ...
