Interview with Muhammad Ali
QUESTION 8
SAM POLLARD:

When you fought Floyd Patterson, what was so special with that fight? What made you feel so good about that fight?

MUHAMMAD ALI:

Me and Floyd, the fight's over now, and I don't want to say nothing bad about the man, I just, he was indifferent, he was different from me, so, he wouldn't call me Clay. He says, "Muhammad ain't no Clay." He wouldn't call me Ali. He says, "Muhammad ain't Clay. He's going to stay Clay." So I took the offensive and says, "I'm going to whoop you, 'til you tell me my name." Round one, I said, "What's my name?" He didn't say nothing. So round 2, round 3, I hit him with my right hand, he said, Muhammad Ali, Muhammad Ali.

SAM POLLARD:

That's good. Cut.
