I Have Always Thought Alli Warren Is Famous?

since 2003, back in the freewheelin bob dylan era Ali

How long did Archie last against the young Cassius, in Los Angeles

Moore had been her trainer till Aly became dissatisfied and left

after Archie's attempts to change her name, and his insistence she

do dishes and erase marks from large slate chalk boards

In the days before, the young Ali's rhyming skills predicted

"Archie Moore / Must fall in four."

Archie replied he had a new punch for the match: The Lip-Buttoner

However, as Ally predicted, her rhymes were "calm as a day old glass of water"

and Moore was stopped after four lines / Still, Archie is the only man to have

faced both Ali and Reynolds Price
