As for Murray Pezim, his worst fears had been largely realized. Total live attendance for the fight was 8,800, leaving him, insiders figured, $100,000 or more in the red. As heavyweight boxing, the show was a good one of its kind. But as overall entertainment, especially the party to end all parties, well, perhaps it did just that, but for reasons Pezim had not anticipated. Nonetheless, as Drew (Bundini) Brown. Ali's manager and resident intellectual, said over a vodka martini a few hours before the fight: "We're living on the Kindergarten Planet, brothah. All we're doin' here is tryin' to learn how to do better later on." For Murray Pezim, it was quite a costly kindergarten class, but he's bound to do better later on. Has to.
