Default Re: Muhammad Ali vs Scott LeDoux '1980'

March 1980

Muhammad Ali, who went back to his camp at Deer Lake, Pennsylvania -

Proclaimed that the Heavyweight Division was a 'mess', and only he could
save it from being devoured from itself.

At 235 lbs., his bout versus 182 lb. Cruiserweight has been squashed, as many
had labeled it 'The Whale versus the Barracuda'.

And Ron Lyle, with pending murder charges, that bout could have been held in a Federal
Penitentiary. Even Muhammad Ali suggested that the bout could be held in Alcatraz.
Muhammad even suggested the bout be billed as 'Escape From Alcatraz'.

Left with Scott LeDoux, a bout that was proposed for Bloomington, Minnesota. Muhammad
was having a difficult time coming up with a moniker, but suggested several names, which all fell flat.
