Muhammad Ali’s best fight: Which Ali performance was his best?

Professional boxing pundits like Bert Sugar usually rate the 1966 bout with Cleveland Williams as the virtuoso performance of Muhammad Ali's career. It has always been a bizarre choice, since anyone acquainted with the background of the fight knows that "Big Cat" Williams was a mere shadow of his former self at the time. The big, rangy puncher who had stood in toe-to...

Memorable sports moment of the week – Muhammad Ali badly tortures Ernie Terrell

Incensed at the Mississippi native’s refusal to recognize his Muslim name, Muhammad Ali badly tortured Ernie Terrell en route to winning a lopsided unanimous decision 46 years ago this Wednesday on February 6, 1967 in Houston, Texas. The then 25-year-old Ali (56-5, 37 KOs), a past three-time heavyweight champion who captured a gold medal for the USA as a light heavyweight at the...

Sox 67

Happy birthday to Ali, a true champ

It would be much later when I truly understood the legend behind the man. Now, as he celebrates his 70th birthday this Jan. 17, there has been somewhat of an effort to downplay his importance to the sport and as a pop culture...
