  • Description

    Muhammed Ali -- undoubtedly the world's most colourful boxing champion -- held a joint conference for newsmen with his not-so-ostentatious challenger, Ron Lyle.

    Ali is strong favourite in Lyle's challenge to the heavyweight title, and says he will knock out Lyle in eight rounds.

    Both fighters were in Las Vegas to train for the challenge, which was described by one Las Vegas bookmaker as "a joke, which nobody would bet on". Others said Ali was not taking Lyle seriously enough.
