All my life as I grew up boxing was the sport that I truly loved. I watched a lot of boxing and am a traditionalist when it comes to weight divisions and title holders. The weight division never mattered just loved watching the greats, James John Corbett, John L Sullivan, Jack Dempsey, Henry Armstrong, Sugar Ray (Take your pick) although I'm partial to Robinson, Willie Pep, Joseph "Sandy" Saddler, Roberto Duran, Thomas "Hitman" Hearns, "Marvellous" Marvin Hagler this list is endless but then there was The Greatest The greatest Heavyweight fighter, in an era of great fighters. There was never any ducking or weaving outside of the ring, if you wanted the title you stepped up and fought who had it, and that's exactly what he did. Muhammad Ali W 56 37 KOs L 5 1 KOs D 0 bouts 61 rounds 548 KOs 61% global ID 180 birth name Cassius Marcellus Clay alias The Greatest born 1942-01-17 death date 2016-06-03 / age 74 debut 1960-10-29 division heavyweight stance orthodox height 6′ 3″ / 191cm The man could move like no other, in fact commentators often said he was very unorthodox with the way he moved. But his biggest weapon was his speed. He really could make people look slow. Rip thanks for the memories.
