Trash talking at it's finest! He also had the skills and firepower to back it up.
"..am so mean I make medicine sick!" lol. Classic!
Cheers for that Sandman.Osu!

They played these on the Facing Ali documentary. Did you watch it yet Sandman? He is awesome and smooth as always!

Mixmasta01 - no, I didn't see that documentary - I'll have to look for it!

And Niceguy - that was my favorite quote too! :D I have to say, I've never liked trash talkers in any sport, but there's something about Ali that makes it alright. Nobody else could get away with acting the way he acted (at least in my eyes). He would talk trash but he was smooth and poetic about it. But his boxing ability - he was out of this world. Really a legend. Osu!

:eek:!

Just thinking about him uttering the phrase "Imma baaaaaaaaad man!" (my fav Ali quote) then following it up with a shin kick...ouch!

Truly a giant among men. Ali is great for not only what he did in the ring, but also for being the class act that he was outside of the ring too.

Absolutely. He risked a lot whilst standing up for his beliefs.

The dude is a god among men. One of my favorite books since childhood has been a biography of him named oddly enough "Float Like a Butterfly, Sting Like a Bee."

Imagine him in the changing room before a knockdown. Trash talking, winding everyone up.....man that's a scary thought!

Ali was the pinnacle of the golden age of boxing-so many great heavy weights then. It got quiet for a bit, then along came Tyson. Ali and Tyson bookended the heavy weight division for me.

Personally I don't like him - but he's a great boxer, I have to give him credit. I hope they can pull together a Mayweather vs Pacquiao bout...

Maybe Baki, but for some reason it doesn't work as well for him as it did for Ali... ;)

At the Citizen M Hotel, at the airport in Amsterdam, there is a HUGE ALi Book in the lobby, by the elevator. And when I say huge, it was HUGE!

Thanks Sandman for posting that, Muhammad Ali was one of a kind, in his prime just after the Olympics, when he fought Sonny Liston (for the 1st time) and for the world title, he was literally untouchable, Sonny Liston dislocated his shoulder trying to hit him and Ali walked away after just 6 rounds (i think) unscathed and with Sonny's Belt. Truly a one in million.
