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

DOG ASIDE:

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.
