Barry Tompkins & Angelo Dundee On Muhammad Ali VS Big Cat Williams & Ali VS Zora Folley


During the reign of Muhammad Ali as the greatest boxer of all time….he took on some really interesting characters……like Charles “Sonny” Liston who was purported to be a hit man for the mafia….Chuck Wepner, a journeyman known as “The Bayonne Bleeder”…who stunned Ali with a knockdown in the ninth round….as Ali would later say he tripped on Wepner’s foot. It was a bout that would inspire Sylvester Stallone to create the acclaimed film, Rocky….which evolved into Rocky VI…and now Creed. a Champions Heart or something like that….but the most interesting character to this lil ole Chiweenie was Cleveland “Big Cat” Williams….who was said to take a .45 caliber bullet point blank in the stomach…and live. I guess we know “Big Cat” could take a punch.
