Quote:
“Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on Brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights? No I’m not going 10,000 miles from home to help murder and burn another poor nation simply to continue the domination of white slave masters of the darker people the world over. This is the day when such evils must come to an end. I have been warned that to take such a stand would cost me millions of dollars. But I have said it once and I will say it again. The real enemy of my people is here. I will not disgrace my religion, my people or myself by becoming a tool to enslave those who are fighting for their own justice, freedom and equality. If I thought the war was going to bring freedom and equality to 22 million of my people they wouldn’t have to draft me, I’d join tomorrow. I have nothing to lose by standing up for my beliefs. So I’ll go to jail, so what? We’ve been in jail for 400 years.”



― Muhammad Ali

I'm talking about what he said, did and how he boxed.

He is the greatest.

I agree ^

But you also need to consider that a lot has changed between those 2 boxers. The sport has become a lot more professional and the level of boxers Tyson would've been fighting would've been to a higher standard than those fought by Ali.

But the world's greatest still belongs to him, he was head and shoulders above anything that could compete during his generation and there were some big, big names even back then.

Naw he didn't actually. Taking nothing away from Tyson, he's an all time great but Ali fought the better competition by far.

I've seen both men fight, Tyson would have never laid a glove on Ali. He had a longer reach and was faster on his feet than Tyson ever was.
