Can't believe a fight was actually getting talked about between these two... lol...

Wilt would have got smacked up. Hence him bitching out when he walked in to sign the papers for the fight, and Ali intimidating the crap out of him by yelling "TIMBEEERRRRRR"... lol.

Jim Brown was in on that, he says in this clip right here that it was Ali's group that backed out of the fight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyrP3HqkpRw

Jim Brown is a loud-mouth POS. Ali would have torn Wilt's head off.

I have no idea about who would have won, he just says Ali backed out of the fight.
That would have been a no-win situation for Ali in my opinion. If he won, well duh. If he lost, he'd have looked the fool

Have you got some facts about Jim Brown's character?

Jim Brown doesn't know shit.

I guess that's why it was Wilt who actually declined to sign the contract, and even had BS reasons played out to the public. Apparently after all the taxes and what not, it wasn't enough of a pay day for him, and not worth his effort. He had his people go on public record and say that I believe.

Truth is, Wilt got scared.

You don't know who would have won? The greatest heavyweight of all time, or some guy who hadn't fought a pro fight? Ali would have mopped the floor with him inside 2 minutes. Even that may be generous.

I hear you. Ali was fierce. One of the great athletes of history. I can't imagine anybody beating him in his best days let alone somebody that didn't box.

Another story is that Chamberlain asked his dad who was a huge boxing fan, if he should go through with the fight , and his dad said he should stop all that and go practice his free throws.

Once again though, that ain't ME saying it. There's not any fact that I know of, other than what Brown says, about how that went down.

There are newspaper articles I'm sure describing Wilt backing out and stating his reasons. Also there are recounts from the press conference backstage that said Wilt turned pale as soon as he heard Ali yell "TIMBER" and declined after talking to his people backstage.

Wilt wasn't stupid. He knew that something like this would kill his whole aura. He knew how to sell himself well. He was a great basketball player, maybe the best ever, and that's about where it ends as far as being the best ever at anything. He wasn't a boxer, nor would he ever come close to being the best. It was complete ignorance on his part to think he could step into a ring and take down the greatest heavyweight at the time, and all time now, after never having stepped in the ring. But then again, I don't think he ever actually thought he could, nor did he ever want to find out. Because it is what it is... he just knew how to market himself.

Ali would of knocked the shit out of Wilt. Ali is a seasoned trained fighter fighting his entire life. One of the greatest if not the greatest fighters in human history. Wilt would of got KOed in one round easily if Ali was serious.

NBA player/Movie star versus one of the worlds greatest fighters in history... Okay

Anyhow, I looked at the clip. Jim Brown said Ali promoter or whatever backed out of the fight. He didn't say Ali would have lost. Probably waste of time for Ali knocking out Wilt in 2 mins or less.

Also in the clip, you posted, Jim Brown said no way hell would he step in the ring with Ali. He said he had that much sense. So yeah...
