Default "Shadow Boxing" The Jimmy Williams story (fmr Ali opponent)

Here's an interesting story about a man named Jimmy Williams. Williams faced Ali one time and vanished. No one knew where he was or what he was doing. It wasn't until a man who had a dream to obtain the signatures of all the men that fought Ali, that Williams was realized to be missing. Take a look at this story. It's a great piece of journalism from ESPN and well worth the read.

It's amazing how many hits a thread called "Floyd sucks balls" gets compared to an actual credible piece of journalism.

mrpain81 posted this earlier. Interesting and depressing read.

But yeah continue posting stuff like this. Let the incessant and idiotic Pac v. Floyd debates rage on.

Stuff like this is crazy because it can literally take years to even get a lead.

Yeah, it's really hard to get hard facts from street people especially fading memories.

In this modern age, people still can and do disappear.

Great read!

The lengths this guy went to search for Jimmy was incredible. Just a sad tale from beginning to end.


On another note. Does anyone have any info on Facing Ali, as far as when it come out?
