Ali, who won the champion- ship in 1964 as Cassius Clay, said Frazier "won't get one good shot at me." "Things are going to happen so fast, Joe Frazier won't be able to'keep up with them. _ "Referees will be running in and out of the ring, people will be singing and dancing in the aisles and when it's all over, Muhammad Ali will take his rightful place as champion of the world."
