Description

"Forget everything else, every fight that has been won or lost before and all of those that will be contested in years to come. Forget every battle of man against man, of mind against mind, of soul against soul. This is the one. This is the greatest.”’

Ali affixed a higher purpose to his fights. His fight wasn’t against the human being in the opposite corner. It was against injustice against his brothers, the forced segregation of his people, the racially charged violence and all the inequities a poor black child born in the hopelessness of the American ghetto has to contend with. His fight went beyond the borders of America too, it stretched into the heart of Vietnam.
