Default McGovern: brutal talker

Before one chastises Ali for his "What's my name?!" demolitions of Patterson or Terrell or Tyson for his "Trying to drive his nose bone up into his brain" comments, consider Terrible Terry McGovern's brutal recount of his fight with fellow Irisher (and world champ) Dave Sullivan:

Good stuff.

I like how he ends it by saying he hopes they can be friends.

I had another article somewhere where McGovern got into a bad row with Dave and Spike Sullivan at a restaurant. Fists flew and more than a few dinners were ruined and tables overturned.

I guess that's where much of the pre-fight "bitterness" came from.

I liked his ending statement myself. Hard not to admire a magnanimous attitude.

I've read that McGovern had a violent temper.
I must confess I did ,when young, but I've learned to control it, as I've aged.
