Well, shit.  Never been a big boxing fan, but its sad to see a cultural icon go all the same.

Huge boxing fan and it's very sad. He wasn't the biggest puncher but it is rare to see a guy that big able to move some lithely, fast and balanced. Was a great boxer and also a great man who stood up for his principles. Would have had an even more glorious career if he wasn't persecuted by the US for being the best. Didn't just take it like Joe Louis though, fought back.

He was a great boxer, perhaps the greatest.  But he was so much more than that.

RIP, fought battles even after his career.  He will definitely be missed.

I'm not a sports fan, and particularly not boxing. And I am deeply saddened by this. Ali was a spectacular human being, he was bold in standing for justice, and by all accounts just a nice fellow. Our world is a little bit emptier now.
Excuse me, sir, do you have a minute to talk about your lord and savior, Hannibal Barca?
