Default Re: Muhammad Ali vs Scott LeDoux '1980'

March 16, 1980

Muhammad Ali wanted to fight WBC Heavyweight Champion - Larry Holmes,

But the WBC and their President Jose Suliaman, suddenly got 'religion' and
wanted Muhammad Ali to defeat at least one WBC Top 10 ranked fighter.

Scott LeDoux was the most available 'perfect' foe.

On March 16, 1980 - CBS-Sports visited Muhammad Ali in Miami Beach while in
training, to check out on the 38 year-old former Champion, and to see how
he was performing in his attempt to get back in shape for a possible May 1980 bout.
