    RIP Ali

    Passed today, fine boxer still watch some of his fights on video

    Put boxing on the map

    Met him once at a book signing in Snottingham, was almost a cabbage by then with bloody Parkinsons but the aura of a great man was unmistakeable.

    Both in the ring and for so many causes. A massive part of America's reluctant Social Revolution. That is why he was such a BIG man and will be remembered with wide spread respect. Another era has closed but his work goes on.

    Like he told us back in the 1960s, he was the Greatest.

    RIP Big Man.

    I did a little amateur boxing (not successfully) and in the world cup year (1966) I was lucky enough to go to London and see Cassius Clay (newly name changed to Muhammad Ali) do an exhibition training session at the Thomas A Beckett gym in the Old Kent Road in preparation for his 2nd bout with 'Our 'Enry. His fist and feet were just a blur of speed for such a big man which left me in awe.

    Rest in Peace big man.
