That's pretty fucking good. LOL

I know him as the referee for the first Liston - Clay fight. I recall that he didn't hear the bell after round one. I thought that he was so shocked at Ali (Clay) winning the first round that he missed the bell.

Wish I was born then. That must've been such a shock.
