Iam the greatest : Muhammed Ali

Ali

 

 

 

The Greatest sportsman ever  walked  in this globe , he inspired millions of them , He spoke courageously  than any other sportsman in the history of sports , His voices and words reverberates strongly with incredible resonance , he stood strongly for  his conviction ,never unshaken  even in the midst of severe criticism ,His action and words are still a treat  to listen and observe . He symbolises the style of a dancing boxer who never stopped moving inside and outside of the ring. His surprised his opponents with  severe   fast paced  punches which  brought many champions to his knees , He characterised a man  with strong views with an unflinching capacity to hold on to it  till his last breath.

He challenged strongly against the Vietnam war in  , refused to  be part of  his country’s  troops to fight  against Vietnam people, he echoed strongly  that they are my brothers , not my enemies .  He has been stripped off from championship medal , lost a huge sum of his price money still this great human being  fought against all odds and stood  in his stand like a  Himalaya.  Yes, all this encomium is not enough to describe this champion sportsman  and  this  great human being . We have witnessed many great sporting legends and they have exhibited great talents in the field of sports they represented , millions of sports enthusiasts across the world had cheered for them , But what makes this man greatest among all other  pantheons  was his courage to speak  to from his heart , Mr Muhammed Ali was considered as  person who is considered close to people, fought for the black against the whites , he spoke in uncertain terms for the black people rights . His every bout are nothing but a reflection of his unmatched confidence , self-belief which he kept all through his life till the last breath.  He is not  just sporting legend , but a global citizen who cared for the poor more than anybody else. He enjoyed more in the presence of ordinary  people than the  in the shoes  of  celebrity sports  personality.  May his soul rest in peace.

The three-time world champion  Mr Ali won 56 of his 61 professional fights between  1960 to 1981. His 10 famous fights were a  treat to watch and inspired millions of fans and followers across the globe.
