Muhammad Ali, simply 'The Greatest,' dead at 74

Quote:Muhammad Ali, the eloquent, colorful, controversial and brilliant three-time heavyweight boxing champion who was known as much for his social conscience and staunch opposition to the Vietnam War as for his dazzling boxing skills, died Friday.

Ali, who had a long battle with Parkinson's disease, was taken to a Phoenix area hospital earlier this week where he was being treated for a respiratory issue. He was 74.

On April 28, 1967, with the United States at war in Vietnam, Ali refused to be inducted into the armed forces, saying “I ain’t got no quarrel with those Vietcong.” On June 20, 1967, Ali was convicted of draft evasion, sentenced to five years in prison, fined $10,000 and banned from boxing for three years. He stayed out of prison as his case was appealed and returned to the ring on October 26, 1970, knocking out Jerry Quarry in Atlanta in the third round. On March 8, 1971, Ali fought Joe Frazier in the “Fight of the Century” and lost after 15 rounds, the first loss of his professional boxing career. On June 28 of that same year, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned his conviction for evading the draft.

At any rate, the guy had ten times the personality and heart of most modern athletes, didn't he, now.

Respect,
and may the gods rest his soul.

I think because of the race wars back then and his involvement with the revolution, he, rightly so, was harbouring resentment.

Good point. In the same way it's not rape if a Muslim does it. coffeetime.gif

And that makes me wonder why it is now illegal to keep statistics on races committing rape in many Euro countries. I guess it would be hard to explain why there were 2,000 rapes and only .5% were committed by the evil whities.
