Default Re: how much of an influence was archie moore on cassius clay ?

The young Cassius learnt a variation of the 'Rope-A-Dope from the 'Old Professor' Archie called it the 'Tortoise Shell' I think. Also Moore's campaigning style when he went after a title shot with Rocky Marciano definitely influenced Muhammad.
