Default Re: Muhammad Ali vs Scott LeDoux '1980'

May 1980

Scott LeDoux,

'I drove from here in Minnesota, all the way to over to Muhammad's training camp in
Deer Lake, Pennsylvania to check him out. What I saw is not good. He had this thick
jiggly jelly roll around his waist.'

'I wanted to leave, but he asked me to watch him spar some Light-Middleweight kid.

'He labored for 6-Rounds with some skinny 150 lb. kid (Charles Carter). After 6-Rounds,
he was exhausted, and he couldn't even land a punch on the kid.'

'I told him, I want a fight, not some kind of sympathy bout. He said he would be ready
in 6-weeks. And I asked him, ready for what, you can't fight anymore.'
