Very intersting.

"One thing that Ali did not reveal in his interview with O'Shannon was the fact that he was suffering from a heavy cold. It worried Angelo Dundee (Ali's trainer) sufficiently that he wanted his charge to pull out of the fight but Ali was insistent that the show must go on. "

I've got Ali's interview with Cathal O'Shannon. It is Ali at this best and funniest and he explains that he doesn't think all whites are devils. Some interesting stuff in it - even performs a little magic trick.
