Muhammad Ali & Johnny Coulon. The Champ visits Johnny Coulon at Coulon's Gym in Woodlawn (1154 E. 63rd). Coulon ran the gym from 1923 until retiring in '73 (at which point his student Clarence Griffin took over), and its descendant, the Windy City Boxing Club, is the center of boxing in Chicago. Johnny was also the 1910 Bantamweight Champion.
