I stumbled across this intriguing photograph today and wondered if any of you guys have any idea if this and the story which goes with it are fake or not?

I don't think there's a date on it. maybe he as fighting exhibitions later on his a career. THAT would make any knock down more plausible, but if it is true I'm really really surprised it hasn't come out by now.

it said, in that link at the time he was still being called Clay, but in that picture he seems a lot older and has put on quite a bit of weight.
