The man, the myth, the legend

Seems like this blog is becoming eulogy – centric of late. 2016 is say goodbye to a legend year. The latest is a true legend both as a boxer and a human being. Mohammed Ali the boxer, while the record should speak for itself, if that’s what you know of him,you don’t know Ali. It was his offstage persona that made him much more fun to watch. Ali knew how to entertain better than some actors and musicians. In his personal life he fought for the right not to fight for his country and was sentenced to 5 years in prison, stripped of his title and made to stay out of the ring for 3 years. Thankfully, he did no jail time, as the US supreme Court overturned the decision 4 years later.
As much of a boxing fan that I am, there are many images I could post, but I believe this image captures the man.
