Muhammad Ali Dies

The boxer Muhammad Ali has died. He was a great boxer and entertainer. Also a great philanthropist. Sad news.

Sad loss

I suppose what I really remember was listening on radio to our Henry putting him down in 1963 and hoping he'd stay down - he didn't

Re: Muhammad Ali Dies

Very sad, he was a great boxer and showman who did a lot for the sport.

As a young lad I remember staying up one night to listen to a radio commentary of a fight, went into the kitchen to make a brew only to return to hear he had won the fight, can't recall who he was fighting.

We are born into history and history is born into us.

Once he grew out of his racist views he was a funny and entertaining man who did a lot for boxing.

I suppose he might be able to R.I.P. now.

A truly inspiring man.

I remember the Michael Parkinson interviews in the 70's and 80's. Wasn't there a whole Parkinson dedicated to him one Christmas/New Year ?

Re: Muhammad Ali Dies

I'm hoping they are going to repeat the interviews with Parkinson. Both men at their bestSmiley

Re: Muhammad Ali Dies

We are all supposed to remember what we were doing when we heard that President Kennedy had been  assassinated.

Well I don't - but I do remember exactly what I was doing when the great Muhammad Ali was floored by  Henry Cooper in 1963.

I was having a few beers in an 'Aussie' pub in Earls Court and watching the fight on TV.

Ali, of course went on to win the fight, much to the Aussies' delight!

What a star!
