Lauren D. Chouinard has never been a boxer or an expert on the sport.   The true fact is he spent his childhood in the inner city of Chicago's south side a few blocks from the home of Cassius Clay (now Muhammad Ali) during a turbulent time of the 1960s trying to keep from getting his ass kicked, stabbed or shot.
