Default Re: INGO vs. Cassius Clay (Sparring session, Fake or ?)

The writing was on the wall with INGO.

November 5, 1960, during a boxing exhibition in Stockholm, Sweden.
More-or-less INGO's pre-training camp for the March 1961 bout with Patterson.

INGO's sparring partner, John Henry, 26, 6' 0", a 190-pound mediocre journey-man heavyweight
with a record of (6-5-3) (1 KO).

John Henry drops INGO 4-times.
After each flash knock-down, the sparring was halted, so each fighter could
re-group, and have a period of rest.

The exhibition was supposed to be a 4-Round Show.
In all fairness, INGO did drop John Henry once (the last knockdown of the exhibition),
which ended the show.
