Default Re: Ali vs Jim Brown at Hyde park - Any other good stories ?

So Brown starts swinging and swinging, and he can't hit him. He's swinging wildly and not even coming close. This goes on for, like, 30 seconds. Then Ali hits him with this quick one-two to his face. Jimmy just stops and says, 'OK, I get the point.'"

Found this interesting, any other interesting stories you guys know of ?
Yeah,I recall that story. Jim realised that acting was the best second career option at hand.
