Always liked him, he was truly the greatest of his generation.
I think the fights with Smoking Joe Frazier did a lot of damage way after the fights had finished.

Very sad indeed.

I recently finished reading his autobiography, "The Soul of a Butterfly," and found it very well written and insightful. I've always admired him for what I knew about him from boxing, but the book shows a side of Ali that was not as well known to the public. I learned to admire him not only for his impressive sportsmanship, but also regarding his objection to and refusal to fight in the Vietnam War. He had a very noble heart, and made it a point to be very good to his fans. People nowadays could learn from that.

QEPD/RIP!

Every now and a very looooooong then. ... a bigger than life legend will be born to transcend time.

They live on, ... and never die.

Wish someday death can be beaten.

Boxing is a cruel sport.
