Then he made another $30,000,000 off of merchandise marketing.

Evel told Muhammad Ali, you just can't fight these guys, getting your brains
smashed. Do something big, fight some Japanese Wrestler or a Russian Weight-lifter.

Fight Bruce Lee if you have to.

The public wants it, they're stupid. They'll buy anything.
And Ali did fight the Japanese wrestler, and what a farce that was
