Muhammad Ali

With the passing of Muhammad Ali on Friday, I saw the end of more than a boxing legend. Back in those days I could enjoy the art of the boxing match—which was forever ruined after the fight between Ray Mancini and Duk-koo Kim; in which Kim died. I had cheered Muhammad Ali and later, we all watched his physical decline. I cannot condone fighting as an art or as entertainment any longer. Yet Muhammad Ali will always be one of the greatest boxers of all time in my opinion. It was tragic to see his decline; and likely too many blows to the head had ultimately taken their toll.
