As a 9 year old I remember Cassius reciting this "poem" on national TV. I thought he was the coolest guy on the face of the earth. I listened to the Clay-Liston fight live on the radio and was overjoyed when he won. People should remember that every time Clay went on TV to promote the fight, is hosts (Jack Parr, Johnny Carson, Jerry Lewis) they talked about how polite and respectful this young man really was. The bragging was just an act to sell tickets and to promote the fight game.
