God, I hope not.
Prize fighters are by definition are absolutely not athelets!!! Boxing is not an athletic sport. He hit so hard and so often that his opponents went into shock, with brain damage. He is a pathetic thing today, from all of the heavy blows to his head. The best you could say was that he a victim of his own personal ego! WBhile other Afro-Americans chose to defie the US government and refused to serve in a an army of a government that were racists. Today he is unaale to articulate, walk without assistance and has done relatively little to further Afro-American courses
You are by definition, brainless, without an inch of sense....today, YOU are unable to rise above the racism that pollutes your one brain cell.
Your a complete *******. This man did everything he believed in. Willing to go to jail for his beliefs.
Ali was just a fun people loving person, He use to hangout on broad way in New York at a place called Lloyd Price's Turn Table, There he would give us a change to punch at his hands to see if you were fast enough to hit them, I never saw anyone who did, Then he would offer you the chance to try to hold your hands up and move it before he hit it, that always happen his punches were just that fast: I got to see and talk to him several times. Then occasionally he would visit another place that were owned by his main man Budini. whether he is the most influential athlete of all time I can't say, but I really liked him and his loud mouth and calling the round he was going to knockout his opponents. I didn't like the draft dodging thing but there are others who did the same or worse. I hate seeing him in the shape he's in today.
I can never forgive him for dodging the draft. I and my cousins and brother had to serve during the Korean War. We did not want to go but we obeyed the law and served our country. Why should Ali be given a free ride. If he had not been the champ with rich friends and rich lawyers he would have gone to jail.
First of all ali does not need your forgiveness, a lot peole are drones, he not only spoke up but also stood up for his beliefs, he didnt hide, or run to canada, he knew they would take his belt, he knew his fortune would lost, but he had the courage to fight the power, and in the in the us supreme court vendacated him.wake up
U said your Counry
I was 15 when Ali fought and " whupped " the " Big Ugly Bear " Sonny Liston,making me one of his most loyal fans since ! Not only was Ali a champ inside the ring,the way he carried himself outside of the ring,combating social injustice,has definately made him,a legend in his own time.
Without a doubt, i remember sitting on the stoop of a building on 148th street, in the Bronx, NY my God that was 50 years ago, shortly after that (November 18th) i enlisted in the Navy and left the Bronx, wow, I returned 34 years later, "GOD BLESS AMERICA, 4-EVER"
God bless Ali.
He is a draft coward.
no..............just the big mouth...............
It seems to me, many people don't understand Ali. Ali was strong, a great fighter and a braggart, and didn't fear anyone. Yes, he did brag, but that was nothing more than a part of his self-promoting. All champs tend to brag, so what? Also, I believe Ali has a very good heart. I saw him in person in 1971 or 72 when he had a lot of problems. I was with him in the barber shop, at the Americana hotel. Unfortunately, somehow, I didn’t recognize him and so I missed getting his autograph. What a blunder? He is a great guy, I loved his fights.Steven Nedeltonwww.snedelton.com
Boxing has two parts Men of will ,contesting,...and money ......His bragging sold tickets....
How can you misunderstand a weak man like him, he ran from things most important. He is a coward.
The Olympian James Thorpe . The athlete who was the ultimate in several athletic feats. Not just one .The one thing that stood out about Ali was his lack of respect for his opponents .His mouth was several seconds ahead of his brain .He was a great boxer,but I think Joe Lewis was superior to Ali .
I'll go along with that...Joe was great in and out of the ring. I'd rank Jckie Robinson even with him. I'm also sure there's probably someone, perhaps not overly famous as an athlete, who's up there, too...
nope, Jckie Robinson
Jackie Robinson, Jackie Robinson, so sick of hearing that name when nobody talks about the people who brought him into the league. they should be heralded for taking that chance on him. yes it was very difficult for Jackie Robinson, more than we probably will ever be able to understand due to the situation he was put in. but lets not forget branch rickey.
What position did Branch Rickey play?
