Muhammad Ali, The Greatest, has died

Recommended Posts

I grew up during Ali's era.  Back then the heavyweight world boxing champion was a global event and the world stopped to watch.   I have wonderful memories of sitting in the living room with the entire family all shouting at the TV during his fights.  His three fights with Joe Frazier were absolute legend and his epic with George Foreman when he won the 3rd title was astonishing.  God bless you big man and RIP.

Loved watching him – not so much boxing but his visit to Brixton and his chats with Michael Parkinson.  Wonder what he would make of the anti-immigration fervour gripping Britain today?

So sad to see him carrying the Olympic torch with such shaky hands. Parkinsons is a nasty thing :(
