Abstract
Muhammad Ali and Scott LeDoux banter during a press event in advance of their upcoming fight on Dec. 5, 1977
Description
Muhammad Ali and Scott LeDoux meet in a business lobby (possibly at Shatkin Trading Co,'s lobby area, per employee spectator's coat badges) for a press event to banter in advance of their December 5, 1977 five-round exhibition match at Auditorium Theater in Chicago.
The hightlight of this footage is when the camera focuses in on Muhammad Ali's fist as he chants "Scott LeDoux, I want you." To which Scott LeDoux responds "Muhammad Ali, you won't last three." Everyone laughs and Muhammad Ali rolls back in his chair with an appreciative smirk.
Later Muhammad Ali is shown airboxing in front of Scott DeLoux's chair, as camera flashes are going off, as Scott LeDoux taunts him "Just like that, you won't be able to hit me." Their playful rousing is undoubtable.
