I don't know. I'll guess someone involved with Ali-Liston.

The surgeon who operated on shooting victim "Big Cat" Cleveland Williams marveled at the abdomen muscle and said it was the only thing that saved his life.

Experts say they have never seen him train so hard. "He's ready," they say, and they discount that at 33 he gives away 10 years to Ali. Nobody is surprised when the odds-makers make him a solid favorite to regain his title. The doctor who examines Liston for the Maine Boxing Commission leaves the room in awe. "He's the fittest man I've ever examined, " he says.

How may days later after that statement was made about Liston did Ali have his "hernia" emergency operation?

I thought it was the surgeon who had to perform the appendectomy on Clay. Or was it a hernia. But it sounds like what you are thinking about.

No, actually. On Ali's hernia operation, the doctor said something like Ali's stomach was such a marvelous specimen that he hated to slice it up.

The "Big Cat" comment I read somewhere had to do with the thickness of the abdomen muscles and how it helped stop the bullet from doing fatal damage.

I guess I misunderstood the question again. Here's an article on Dr. Raphael Turgeon when he passed away.
