Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, his hands can’t hit what his eyes can’t see

Muhammad Ali, Cassius Clay …call him who you will, for by any name a rose smells just as sweet.
Ali was the greatest heavyweight boxer there ever was. Born on 17 Jan 1942 he is  now 70 years old. The physique above is gone, wasted, and in another 10 years he could well be lying on the deck alongside Sonny Liston as a 13 year old prowls over him.
Apart from the aging process, Ali is additionally a victim of Parkinson’s disease. It was quite a different era when he claimed that ‘I’m so fast that last night I turned off the light switch in my hotel room and got into bed before the room was dark.’ God bless him. Be he the Louisville Lip, or The Greatest, you be the judge. -Patrick-Collins, the Daily Mail sportswriter: said that “Muhammad Ali’s Wikipedia entry describes him as; ‘An American former professional boxer, philanthropist and social activist.’  
All true, of course. Just as Mozart could knock out a decent tune and Michelangelo was a handy chap with a chisel. Ali’s stature transcends easy labels.” See Parkinson’s interviews with this memorable athlete, who is the BBC Personality of the 20th Century.
