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 ? about any boxer

I was going to post this, but I had a busy weekend! I have a hunch some of the international posters do not know who Jim Brown was. Jim Brown was in many ways the equivalent of Sonny Liston for American football. He was bigger, faster, stronger, and very agile for a man his size.
