Default Cassius Clay, Set To Defend Title Versus Alvin Lewis, June 15, 1967

In his first bout since being 'stripped' of his Heavyweight Title,
Cassius Clay will engage in a 15-Round bout with Detroit's
Alvin 'Blue' Lewis.

Unable to get any State Boxing Commission's to sanction any of his
bout's, Mr. Clay got a special license from the State of Michigan
Athletic Commission with the help of Chuck Davey.

Unfortunately,

Cassius Clay was only paid expenses for this promotion, as virtually nobody
came to attend this bout at the 12,000 seat capacity Cobo Arena.

Cassius was soon to learn, nobody really cared about him. He was nobody special.

In the meantime, only 1-week earlier, the Jerry Quarry vs. Floyd Patterson bout
in Los Angeles drew 27,000 at the Memorial Coliseum.
