Don King, on Mike Tyson

"Why would anyone expect him to come out smarter?
He went to prison, not to Princeton."

"To me, boxing is like a ballet, except there's no music
and the dancers hit each other."

Exported.; exp;Doctors hope to send boxing icon Muhammad Ali home from the hospital soon.

In October, Rahman Ali described his brother’s well-being as pretty dire at a publicity event for the documentary, “I am Ali,” saying he was in failing health and could not even speak.
Ali is regarded as one of the greatest heavyweights of all time and participated in fights that doubled as cultural events, such as,
  • the “Fight of the Century” against Joe Frazier at the Garden; 
  • the “Rumble in the Jungle” with George Foreman and 
  • the “Thrilla in Manila” against Frazier for a third time.
