Ishmael Reed speaking to Amy Goodman on the Democracy Now Interview ‘The Greatest”:
“Now, now, now, one more thing—Amy, I want to mention this. Ernie Terrell was considered the Mob fighter….my book was published in Canada. And so, some of my passages have a Canadian emphasis. There was a showdown between organized crime, which ran boxing, up (against) the Nation of Islam and the organization called Main Bouts. The showdown happened in Toronto. Ali and Herbert Muhammad were warned that if Ali didn’t take a dive and didn’t, you know, fall to Ernie Terrell, he would wind up at the bottom of Lake Michigan. Now, according to George Chuvalo, whom Ali fought, the man who made the threat was paid a visit by the Nation of Islam. And if you want to know what happened after that, you can read my book.”
