in his own words
" will they have another boxer who writes poems, predicts rounds, beats everybody, makes people laugh, makes people cry and tall and extra pretty as me" "NEVER"

bbc news online have an excellent tribute to Ali and is well worth a look

Probably not the greatest boxer ever but probably my greatest hero. He was a great man and not only saved heavyweight boxing from the mob run pit into which it had sunk but gave black America voice, then Muslims a voice, then those opposed to war a voice. Despite his trade of violence those voices were ultimately voices of peace. No man deserves more to rest in peace. His courage and dignity through his latter years are a lesson in humility to all. If Ali could bear his illness with such humility what right have any of us to moan? The death of a man rarely truly signals the end of an era. This does. God Bless you, Ali. Thank you.
