Changed the world in the ring with his fists
More so with the gift when rang from his lips
Muhammed Ali was important, not because of his boxing, but also for his choices in life. The fact that he refused going to Vietnam and the fact that he was an outspoken person are important factors. Brother Ali appreciates this part of him, maybe even more than his boxing.
Ali’s prefight smack talking may also be seen as a precursor to rap music.
