    First correct responder gets to ask the next question.


    Question:
    Canada's greatest heavyweight.

    He finished his career 73-13-2 with 64 KOs, once going the full 15 rounds against Muhammed Ali, another time going 12 against him.

    He was never knocked down.

    My question: 2 answers needed

    What MLB baseball player sued MLB in violation of the antitrust laws, and who was the first free agent in MLB?

    (BTW this is my 1000th post....do I get a cookie or something?)

    Dammit- I know Curt Flood, but I'm not sure about the other. Was it Jim "Catfish" Hunter?

    Yes it was.....Flood was traded from St Louis to Philly, and did not want to go...went to the Supreme Court....

    Hunter let his contract expire, and signed an unprecedented 5 yr 750K per year deal with the Yankees.
