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

MR. UN,

1961, a Bad time for the Heavyweight Championship.
Two 'shaky' guys in the ring at the same time.

All of INGO's sparring sessions in Miami Beach were held behind closed doors
at The Sea Breeze Hotel, in a closed off conference room, where no one had access.

His regular sparring partner John Henry was let go at the end of 1960, and in
January 1961 in Geneva, Switzerland, he was popped to the canvas several times
by one Thorner Ahsman, a 5' 11", 195-pound Heavyweight with a record of (10-1-2) (4 KO's)

Early reports from Europe, to fight promoter Bill Fugazy in Miami Beach were not
good concerning the condition of INGO.
He was getting dropped or shaken by right hands on a too much regular basis.
