Muhammad Ali vs Ernie Terrell, 1967
”Why don’t you call me my name, man. I never told you my name is Cassius Clay. My name is Muhammad Ali and you will announce it right there in the center of that ring after the fight, if you don’t do it now. You are acting just like an old Uncle Tom. I’m gonna punish you.”
- Ali to Terrell, who refused to call him by his new name before the fight. Ali won a 15th-round decision.
