Remembering Muhammad Ali

Muhammad Ali, apart from being one of the greatest boxing legends of all time, was also a class act.

In January 1981, Ali rushed from his home to save a young African-American man who was planning to jump from the 9th floor of a building in Los Angeles, according to Fox Sports.
