A true champion, and arguably the best boxer in recorded history.

R.I.P Cassius Clay.

I'd rate Sugar Ray Robinson, Joe Louis, Mike Tyson and Jack Dempsey in the same category as Ali and find them all equally as good in their own way. Stylistically I preferred watching Pernell Whittaker too. Admittedly Im not a great boxer but I enjoy it.

Mohammed Ali was very similar to how Donald Trump is today.

1. Mohammed Ali was one of the best at what he did for a living.
2. He was "larger than life" in a showbizzy / flamboyant way.
3. He loved to "Trash Talk" his opponents.
4. Mohammed Ali was very issue-driven. He didn't just have feelings about what the country needed...he spoke and acted on those feelings and beliefs.

There's more, but those are the main similarities, IMO. No wonder America believes in Donald Trump so passionately!

do we really have to make this a political issue ?


There are many posts drawing comparisons between Mohammed Ali and other great people. I was simply stating how Mohammed of the 1960's/1970's, is similar to the Donald Trump of today. It's not political. It's a compliment to Mr. Ali!

All good, but the fighter that crushed Liston has no match in history. Imo
None of them on their best day could've contended with the great master.
I guess I'm a fan.

I agree, and it's in no way demeaning to the others, it's just that Ali was THAT good.
God only knows what the world would have seen if he hadn't lost his three best years.

The most ridiculous comparison ever and also very insulting to a legend.

Trump is an idiot and in no way should you compare him to someone like Ali.

Crap comparisons aside i would have loved to seen Mohammed Ali knock that moronic buffoon Trump in to next week.

I hated to see him go. He's an icon.

Thanks for that Kali - was reading through the thread and was wondering when this would be brought up

This always struck me as being incredibly brave considering the times
