In the spring of 1966, Cassius Clay the boxer who later changed his name to Muhammad Ali, came to nearby Toronto to train for an upcoming fight with George Chuvalo. Clay entered the session in usual grandeur. Joey Reynolds can be seen for a moment in the front row of the audience. There is no sound track on this news film.

This film clip was rescued from destruction by the BBA, digitiized, stored as part of the BBA film archive, and is just one of over 1500 news clips from WBEN-TV (WIVB) from 1966.
