MAN: This bout, 15 rounds for the
heavyweight championship of the world.
The challenger from
Louisville, Kentucky, Cassius Clay.
And his opponent from Denver, Colorado,
the heavyweight champion of the world,
Charles Sonny Liston.
JONES: Ali, by then,
had had 19 professional fights.
It wasn't as though
he'd suddenly come upon the scene.
He'd been properly, properly managed
in the sense that, uh,
Dundee was an expert match maker.
I mean, match making is
one of the great skills in boxing.
Finding the right guy at the right time.
