Simply The Greatest!
What great memories he gave us!

I remember my Dad waking my Brother and I in the early hours in 74 to listen to the "Rumble in the Jungle" commentary by Harry Carpenter live on the Radio...Dad called the result ( well against the mainstream...won a load of Dosh and made fervent Fight Fans and Ali Fans of us both!

Yes what a loss. I had the privilege of watching all his fights from the gold medal thru all his professional career.

If anyone hasn't seen "When we were Kings" which tells the whole story of the lead up to...and shows His epic encounter with George Foreman I strongly recommend it!
You don't even have to be Fight Fan...amazing.
