  • Ali has months to live

    Muhammad ALI may have just months to live, it has emerged yesterday. The 63-year-old boxing great, who has battled Parkinson's disease for 20 years, can no longer talk and is shutting himself away from those closest to him.



    I hope it's wrong.

    The majority of us have months to live.

    His olympic torch moment was fantastic.

      Meh.

      He boxed, he did it with flair, and he suffered the head injuries due to his choice of sport.
      While I can appreicate the man and his damned near artwork in the ring (although he could look exceedingly lazy at times) he did rather bring this upon himself.

      had any feelings"

        Did you just speak out against a black athlete whom many idolize without knowing his story, simply because he said "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee" or "I'm a bad man!"?

          That's not the point. People arent just upset because a great boxer is dying. Its because of what he did and what he represented outside of the ring that made him an even bigger legend.

            As I said I can appreciate the man; it's simply that while he was majestic in a way, well...let's have a show of hands of those who thought he'd have a long and healthy life.

              If it wasn't for white, hetrosexual people attending boxing matches this never would have happened.

              I think there's some way to sue over this.

                I can not stress the importance of Ali on my personal life.

                He was a Black man who stood up for what he believed in and was successful beyond imagination at a time when this was not popular. His refusal to bow down to any man or establishment cost him personally but fortified my own courage.

                Like most heroes - life often humbles them and your opinion of them. Ali's verbal jabs at Joe Frazier and others where cruel in the light of age - whereas in my youth they were just facts. His obvious infidelity was not the epitome of a family man. His chosen sport has left many in bad condition both financially and physically.

                In the light of this day he remains to me a symbol of my own pride and of the ability of anyone to achieve something. He is my youth - my summer - my spirit of bravery - my unbending knee - my unbowed head.

                      How about admiring somebody truly great like Charles Hamilton Houston? Ali was just an ignorant moron with boxing skills. Same with Leon Spinks. The dipshit should have been booted out of this country to the Muzzy land of his choice.
