Mohammed Ali - Happy 70th Birthday
« on: January 18, 2012, 02:16:28 AM »
The Greatest with a punch that floated like a butterfly, stung like a bee was 70 on January 17th.

There  was a nice tribute on Sky Sports News, unfortunately he is looking quite frail now from Parkinson's disease, although it is said his mind is still sharp.

Also, for those interested, there is a series of five programmes on ITV4 over the next few nights. The first was earlier tonight and featured his two fights against Sonny Liston, the first when he became World Champion at 22 in 1964 and the rematch 18 months later, when the then Cassius Clay ko'd Liston in the first round.

Great watching.
