Transcript
  •  Ernie Terrell concentrates on training for his upcoming heavyweight bought with champion Cassius Clay.

  •  The Chicago heavyweight is rated as the top contender for Clay's title. Most experts predict it will be the champ's toughest fight since he won the crown. 
  •  Meanwhile, Clay could be taken in the draft. He's been reclassified 1A. 
  •  Terrell's only comment, quote: "I'm gonna shut Clay's big lip."
