Muhammad Ali v. Jimmy Ellis, July 26, 1971.
This was Ail's first fight after losing to Joe Frazier in March 8 of that same year. Growing up together in Louisville, KY, Ali and Ellis were occasional sparring partners. They were also friends. Ali was faster and stronger, but dragged the match out 12 rounds, until he called for the fight to end so his friend wouldn't be hurt anymore.

#AZAChallenge entry: Orion: The Man Who Would Be King (2015) directed by Jeanie Finlay (Pantomime & The Great Hip Hop Hoax). This is the story of Jimmy Ellis, a horse trainer with aspirations and the talent to become a music sensation. Only problem is that he sounds exactly like Elvis. When the King dies suddenly, Ellis takes on the gimmick of Orion, a mask wearing singer who's real identity is hidden from the public. Sounding just like Presley, his fans hope that it's actually Elvis under that mask. When it comes to reviewing a documentary, in my opinion, it all depends if I care for the subject matter. I loved this film. Here's a man who has a great voice and should be a star but doesn't get the chance because of timing. I'm sure that this happens all the time in the music industry but I was captivated by Ellis'story. He is a man with many faults but I can't help but root for him. Even saddled with a gimmick that he hates, his love to perform kept him going. In the brief time at the top of his run, he released a bunch of albums in different musical country genres to see what would stick with the buying public which could have contributed to his downfall since he was spread too thin but after seeing this doc, I'd love to find his rockabilly album on vinyl. I've been on a bit of a documentary streak recently and this one would be at the top of my recent list. Highly recommended! #OrionTheManWhoWouldBeKing #JeanieFinlay #JimmyEllis #SunRecords #CountryMusic #Documentary #Netflix #CinefessionsPodcast #InFilmWeTrust ^M

Selma, AB. Live Oak Cemetery. I've never seen anything like it. Pretty amazing.... #selma #alabama #liveoakcemetary #jimmyellis #jimmyellisorion

Selma, Alabama. Had an amazing experience at the New & Old Live Oak Cemetery. Found where Jimmy Ellis ( Orion ) was buried. Chatted for over an hour with his close personal friend Jerry Hatfield. Very nice man....and of course the scene of Bloody Sunday, the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Cannot say I felt comfortable here but it was an experience. #jimmyellis #jimmyellisorion #orion #liveoakcemetary #jerryhatfield #selma #alabama #edmundpettus

Orrville, Alabama. Home to Jimmy Ellis ( Orion ). Sign for his Pawn Shop is still in great shape considering he was murdered by Robbers while running it back in 1998. ( Pawn shop is still there but is now a Hunting Lodge ) run by his son. His old house however has burnt down but pretty neat little town. Lots of character... #orrvillealabama #jimmyellis #orion #orrville

Today was a dope day. Former heavyweight Champ #JimmyEllis brother Jerry stopped by @therealb965 studios to talk about his youth development golf program happening in Louisville. Not even 30mins before we knew he was stopping by, we were talking about his late brother, Jimmy. Small world! Had no clue he was coming by our studios today! He dropped some knowledge about boxing and his relationship with #MuhammadAli. He even served as a pallbearer at Ali's funeral. This man is full of wisdom and wants the best for our youth in the Louisville metro. Get details about his youth program online at TheFirstTeeLouisville.com #MiddayHustle #LouisvilleKY #Louisville #Kentucky #igerslouisville #livelocallou #mylouisville #getoutlouisville #lovelouisville #sharelouisville #everythinglouisville #louisvillelove #lovelife #PositiveVibesONLY #louisvilleigers #yeslouisville #GiveBack #502stepup

Downtown Louisville,KY.. corner or 3rd & Muhammad Ali yesterday for the street unveiling in honor of my uncle Jimmy Ellis. Felt like a small family reunion. #heavyweightchamp #jimmyellis #boxing #boxingfans #downtownlouisville #louisville #ellisfamily #muhammadali #evanderholyfield #family #honored

Yesterday the city of Louisville honored my late Uncle James "Jimmy" Ellis, former heavyweight champion of the world, by naming a street after him. My family and i are ever so grateful because it is long overdue. My uncle was a humanitarian and did a lot for the city of Louisville, Kentucky. As a matter of fact, after he won the title, Canada offered my uncle citizenship and wanted him to come and fight and represent their country, as their champion, but he didn't want to leave Louisville, it was his home and where his heart was. Seeing this great heritage in my family has done nothing but made me want to be great as well. Having that fight in my blood let's me know how possible it is and to have an opportunity to further the legacy of my family. Nothing short of a blessing. #jimmyellis #ellisgang #heavyweight #boxing #louisville #igerslouisville #kentucky #lafamilia #family #evanderholyfield

New Street in Louisville Ky. In honorary of former Heavy weight boxing Champion of the World we present to you... James Jimmy Ellis Way. Well over due and well earned!
