Ron Lyle the U.S. boxer who will challenge Muhmmed Ali in a heavyweight championship bout?
Ron Lyle the U.S. boxer who will challenge Muhmmed Ali in a heavyweight championship bout on Friday (16 May), is in the final stages of his training sessions.
Lyle lost his last fight--in January--to an unranked fighter and observers are not sure he can go the 15-round distance in the bout with Ali.
His trainers, Bobby Lewis and Chickie Ferrera say he's ready for the fight, and Lyle thinks he can make the distance. But the odds are against him, and ali believes he can win the nationally televised ;fight in eight rounds.
