Default Re: Muhammad Ali-Jeff Shelburg in '82?

Muhammad Ali was supposed to fight Randall 'Tex' Cobb in Bermuda in December 1981.

But Randy broke his arm, and Trevor Berick was summoned to fill in.

Not sure Muhammad Ali had enough left to defeat John L. Gardner.

The Hawaii Boxing Commission said, Ali failed the preliminary Doctor's exam.

His reflexes were poor, and his speech was slurred, as per The Honolulu Register.
