Muhammad Ali is 72 today
The Louville Lip is still
The Greatest Of All Time his charisma and heart has endeared him to millions all over the world
Whats your favourite Ali fights?
For me I reckon
Cassius Clay Vs Sonny liston the first fight between them was his
And he looked fantastic against cleveland Williams
(Although Cleveland'Big Cat'Williams had been recovering from gunshot wounds)
His Three Joe Frazier fights?
In his latter years did he deserve to win his controversial fight against Ken Norton in 1976
His comeback to beat Leon Spinks in 1977 to become World Heavyweight Champion 3 times?
One of my favourite quotes from Ali was after he won an olympic gold medal in Rome in 1960 and was refused service in a cafeteria in his hometown.
"We don't serve negroes"
"Thats Okay I dont eat em
Just give me a cup of coffee and a hamburger"
If you are an Ali fan there are a couple of good documentaries out there
Muhammad & Larry
and also a book he published called Soul of a butterfly is worth a read.
Wishing Ali a happy birthday and good health :)
