falah...ever heard of a bad seed...That's Matthew Newton..a bad seed...Even as a cop I found it repugnant the type of males (won't call them men) who beat up on women. I used to give those creeps the hardest time of the lot. .

It'll be a thriller & a killer & a chiller when I get that gorilla in Manilla.




I could listen to Ali all day - he's funny.

I remember all the great fights - especially Ali's.
I was surprised that Ali didn't knock out Frazier in Manilla in the first 5 rounds.
Frazier just seemed to be made of steel & wouldn't go down.
Any ordinary fighter would have been killed by Ali.

Ali was a great boxer and showman, but in my opinion as a human he was very average...he became the very person he and all black people was fighting against ...a bigot...his opinion of white people was exactly the same as the KKK has on black people, but somehow Ali's way of thinking was right.

Was he "the greatest"?  In his day, sure.

But he can't hold a candle to this man...

...

In fact, "dr ironfist" could probably handle Ali AND frazier together.

Nonsense - Ali was the greatest!
Don't you know your history?

Ali even said  " I am the greatest "

Exactly - but for me Ali will always be the greatest.
I've never seen anyone fight with such skill.
It was so interesting to watch how he moved.

It's interesting that no one has mentioned that after the 14th round, it was a race to throw in the towel. Frazier was virtually blind and Ali begged his handlers to cut off his gloves.
I  thought the doctor who featured in the doco was an absolute loony...

I thought there has been quite a few boxers who were better.
But Ali was very good, by all measures

I think Tyson was the greatest when he was young at first round knock outs.
Don't know how he would have fared against Ali in his prime.
We'll never know.

Cassius Clay was a smart, charismatic man, but was he good for the sport of boxing?

I say no, though it's beyond his control.  He basically invented "trash-talking" in what was previously a gentlemens sport.  He was very good at it, his cheeky barbs not overstepping the line but having the desired effect. Unfortunately, people who followed him and imitated his example aren't so good at it.  They lack the wit and try to compensate with thuggishness.  This has turned boxing into a farce, similar to WWF.  Can there be a championship fight where they don't have the obligatory choreographed showboating and push-and-shove at the media conference and/or weigh in these days?

BULLYING RUNS ECONOMIES, SO NO!!!
