The best boxer of my time on the planet.

Quite the character, very entertaining in the ring as well as out of it.

Very good person to. May he rest in peace. His last fight is over..

Regards, Kirk

It's still hard to believe he grilled George Foreman and also lost to Leon Spinks. I remember him as a braggart villain early in his career and a more humble hero later. RIP

A trivia question that involves Muhammed Ali, but is actually about another person.....

Who is the only person to box with Ali and later win an NFL Superbowl ring?
Hint, he was a football player before the fight and he went all 8 of the scheduled rounds without getting knocked down.
