RIP Cassius Clay apart from his obvious boxing skills, what a character.

What a showman and great boxer he was. I remember listening to the radio coverage of some of his fights with my Dad. It was such a shame he developed Parkinson's Syndrome as a result of his boxing.

God bless

I heard on the radio at the weekend that Cassius Clay had his bike stolen by bullies when he was 12 years old and a New York Cop got him into Boxing for self defence. The rest is history.
