R.I.P. Muhammad Ali
I felt the history section needed a memorial to the Greatest.

Finally found the thread to pay tribute to a legendary man who inspired several generations of people of different cultures. Thanks, cuz for this thread.
Ali was already very popular- a household name -in our country long before he became a champion. How did l know this? my late uncle Jess told me that l was a big baby when l was born in 1960- 9.8 lbs and that one uncle told my father that l was big like Cassius Clay.
l became aware of Ali when he fought Joe Frazer for the first time which was called "the fight of the century". The fight was heavely advertised in our country that when all tv's and radio's in our country were tuned in during the fight. l was walking home from school as the fight was happening and l can hear the fight being broadcasted continuously from house to house as l walked home. When l reached home, our house was full of people watching the fight. l saw how Ali was knocked down and how at the end it was announced that he lost the fight. That was the time that l became a boxing fan and l never stopped being a fan of the greatest of all time.
