The 'original' Crawl Across the Ring Story
'Cassius Offered $10,000 To Put Up or Shut Up'
Only a few "ifs" stands between verbose Cassius Clay and a
bonus check of $10,000.
If Clay fights Eddie Machen, if Clay can predict the exact round for
Machen's Kayo, and if Clay fulfills his prediction, Machen says,
'I'll crawl across the ring on my hands and knees, and give him the check'.
Another offer came in from some Houston magnates, with interest in Cleveland Williams.
They promised Clay $10,000, for each round he
can stay in the ring with the 'Big Cat'.
