I was going down to my local Paper shop to pick up the Paisley Express so that I could see my adventures with the Cow’s from yesterday and was asked a strange question …
Did Cassius Clay Fight in Paisley, to which I replied.. Yes but I had only heard it through someone else so had to go back and do some research to make sure and sure enough, he did and found a few links as well which are well worth reading..
He Came to the Paisley Ice Rink and fought Jimmy Ellis, who assumed the title after Clay had been stripped of the title for not joining up to fight in the Vietnam War.
How amazing is history.. anyways you can read more from following this link, totally fascinating.
