Default Re: Ruben" Hurican "Carter VS Jimmy Ellis KD in rd 4

The story of Ellis is that he appealed to Angelo Dundee for help after this fight, and Dundee took over every aspect of his training and life. He had Ellis' tonsils removed and after that Ellis quickly gained weight. His shocking 1st round KO of hot prospect Johnny Persol put him into the limelight and earned him entry into the WBA's HW elimination tournament. Ellis was the biggest underdog of all coming into that tourney, and was the underdog in every match he fought in. Later, when Ellis fought Ali, Dundee chose to work in Ellis' corner.
