This story is incredible. He use to train with Jimmy Bang Bang Walker at Knott Street. This blog on Portland is the best.

Don't let knot st.die always keep the stories told for years to come.I Love the Gym.

I can remember seeing an interview Howard Cosel had with both Ernie Terrell and Thad Spencer before their fight. Howard was "all about" Terrell during the interview apparently thinking Terrell would pummel Spencer into defeat. After Terrell spoke, Cosel asked Spencer about how Thad was going to go into the fight. What struck me was Spencer's reply that he was "tired of being a ham and eggs fighter" and was going to win. Cosel poo-pooed Spencer's words and asked Terrell what he thought. Of course, it wasn't much. As we know, Thad Spencer beat Terrell without question. You could see Terrell's posture and expression when he got off the canvas in round 2 that Spencer was no joke.
