    Jay Ambler wrote: In 1982 or 83 Kareem Muhammed (Ray Candy) and Blackjack Mulligan engaged in a vicious brass knucks match that was televised. Mulligan was the Florida brass knucks champion. The match ended up going outside where both competitors used an old parked pick up truck, complete with rope and barbed wire in the back, as a battering ram against each other. Holiday was at the match displaying his hyperactivity that was part of his angle.
