The Man Who Put a Curse on Muhammad Ali

The Downright Crazy Story of Richard Dunn's World Title Challenge
Norman Giller
222 x 144


It was the funniest fight build-up of Muhammad Ali's career - and publicist and writer Norman Giller saw it all. Britain's Richard Dunn was facing Ali for the world heavyweight crown, and Giller hired the eccentric hypnotist Romark to convince Richard he could topple 'The Greatest', not realising Romark planned to put a curse on Ali. Chaos and comedy ensued.
