The saddest News

Walking down the street only moments ago, i happen to hear two gentlemen outside a local bar “Wow i know right i cant believe it” one says to the other.
“no biggie…. i didn’t like him anyhow” the other exclaims as they walk back inside. Shrugging it off i follow no further thought about the remarks until minutes ago when i heard it on a local news flash.

Boxing great JOE FRAZIER has died after losing a final fight against liver cancer. The former heavyweight champion, who handed Muhammad Ali his first defeat in the ring.

The great Cassius Clay aka: Muhammad Ali sadly passed away today after a long standing battle with Parkinsons disease.

I felt then the urge to respond to the gents outside that bar, i know they may or may not read this but if they or yourselves do please read on.

No Biggie sir?

Yes its a biggie my friend, yes its sad and yes you say you didn’t like him anyhow? Well let me respond………F*@k You buddy!!

Today not only another man died, not only was this man the greatest boxing champion the world has ever seen, more so and most probably the greatest boxing legend we had the honor of only seeing on tv or from afar. He was well known as The great Cassius Clay or Muhammad Ali, a name i personally thought every human being would have known, i am personally shocked & saddened to see a legend like him decline in such a cruel way, i say cruel as my father himself is also suffering the same torture. Legends like this should never be forgotten, i can only leave you all with this terrible news and some photographs of Mr Ali in his hayday/prime.

Final words to a champion

Thankyou sir Ali for gracing me with your brilliance, thankyou for the videos i watched when i was 18-20 as i trained in my garage seeking to find the secrets of boxing in your style and grace. thankyou for helping make me proud of who i was and where i came from and thankyou for being the champion whom now lives on in my memory forever as a legend that no man could ever replace as “the greatest” – Cassius Clay aka: Muhammad Ali in your words i gladly quote.

he who floats like a butterfly & stings like a bee, you will most definately be missed by millions and yes i liked you ….. i liked you alot   🙂
