  • Description

    The former world heavyweight boxing champion, Cassius Clay, or Muhammed Ali as he has become known, has begun his attempt to stage a come-back in boxing. Clay was stripped of his world title in 1967 after refusing to serve in the United States army and he had not fought for three and a half years.

    On Monday (October 26) he will fight fellow-American Jerry Quarry in an exhibition bout at Atlanta, Georgia.

    The fight is scheduled to go fifteen rounds. Clay reports himself ? fit after his three years out of the ring, and plans to fight around 208 pounds (94k.g.) eleven pounds (5k.g.) heavier than Quarry.

    Clay, asked about his opponent, was uncommonly modest, although he believed he was still the fastest heavyweight in the world despite his absence from the ring. Quarry said he regarded Clay as strictly a puncher and he would "nail"Clay.
