Hy Gardner, Charles Laughton, Cassius Clay, Muhammad Ali, Henry Cooper, Clure Mosher, Brian Wilson (?)

On HY GARDNER SHOW, an excerpt replay of Heavyweight boxer Cassius Clay's (Muhammad Ali)  interview by WOR-TV sports reporter Clure Mosher, originally broadcast the middle of May 1963 prior to Clay flying to London to fight reigning British Heavyweight Champion, Henry Cooper. 

Cassius Clay tells Clure Mosher that he wants to fight "the bear" Sonny Liston. He states, "I want him three months after Patterson. I'm going to get this man out of the way. He is nothing."

Mosher replies, "Liston is a big, stern and mean-looking man, Cassius. I fear he would just scare you to death getting in the ring with him."

Cassius Clay, "I'm just too crazy to be scared."

Clure Mosher, "I think you're going to do very well and make a lot of money. And, as a matter of fact, you and Patterson may go down in history, as far as I am concerned, as being two of the boxers around having made more money with less talent than anybody."

Cassius Clay, "You are just getting off the subject. You just talk too much. I'm sorry I have to go to bed. I have a fight coming up and I don't want to see you unless I'm in the ring. I'm through."

 Clay walks out on the interview.

After television viewers, Hy Gardner, and his guest views this clip Hy Gardner is amazed at what we just saw.
 
Hy Gardner, "Did you ever see anything like that?" Now, this was Cassius Clay. I don't know if he just got mad and walked out or this was just showmanship?"   

Hy's guest, Brian Wilson (?) on his show remarks that he thinks it was showmanship. Gardner remembers only one time that a guest on his show quit on him on the air, naming Charles Laughton.  

Gardner, "I think it is great when someone does walk out on you. Is this the real  Cassius Clay or Cassius Clay the image?"  

Hy Gardner's guest, Brian Wilson (?) mentions that he recently spent three days in Miami with Clay and thinks he is great for boxing predicting nine out of ten times the round he will beat his opponents. 

Hy comments that during the Clure Mosher interview Clay amazingly called the exact round he would defeat his next opponent. 

NOTE: One month after the May 1963 Clure Mosure interview, Cassius Clay predictably KO'd Henry Cooper in five rounds on June 18, 1963). 

NOTE: The Cassius Clay May 1963 television interview by Clure Mosher is the earliest known extant one on one studio interview of Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali).

Johnny Carson, Ed McMahon, Cassius Clay, Muhammad Ali, Dave Kaplan

     On September 15, 1965 Johnny Carson made disparaging remarks about the just announced scheduled November 22nd Heavyweight Championship Fight between challenger, Floyd Patterson and Champion Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali). 

Four minutes into his opening monologue Johnny spends over a minute and a half criticizing Ali.
He states, "Whoopie, here we go again. I think we are going to be taken again, folks." " We are being set up for another farce."

NOTE: The entire Johnny Carson opening 9:22 monologue is heard.

The following night, September 16, 1965 Muhammad Ali makes a surprise visit to The Tonight Show and gets back at Johnny with ribald remarks and comedic banter. 

This appearance would only be his second on The Tonight Show, his first appearing in 1963. Johnny takes all of Ali's acerbic "attack" in good fashion and plays along with a combative Muhammad who explains that he was enjoying eating his ice cream at home last night and watched himself being ridiculed. 

Additional topics discussed include Ali's respect for challenger Floyd Patterson, his admiration for Johnny and what he does night after night, challenges with 70% taxes taken from him by Uncle Sam, staying in shape, never being scared of a fight but being nervous before each fight, losing a fight never a consideration, no longer predicating outcomes of his fights but predicting Patterson fight will go six or seven rounds, mentioning of  his LP record, "I Am The Greatest," and praise for his music producer Dave Kaplan who is in the audience, and discusses the KO punch that floored Sonny Liston.

After Ali leaves the stage, Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon praise Ali for being a very nice person, and that after tonight's appearance people will have a different  impression of him. 

NOTE: This rare, and forgotten surprise appearance by Muhammad Ali runs for 13 minutes. It is not listed in journals or reference books, or even notated within Ali's 23 Tonight Show appearances when searching IMDb.
