Freddie Star Floors Muhammad Ali

"Float like a butterfly!
Sting like a bee!
There's no way on Earth
Yer gonna get me!
'cause I'm the greatest!"

Well that may have been the case  because no-one ever did get Ali, formerly known as the great Cassius Clay, arguably the greatest boxer the world has ever produced. Our Henry Cooper nearly caught him with his well known lethal left hook which floored him in a world title fight. But Ali survived every attempt . . . . . until . . . . . until.

Our Freddie Star who is much more cunning!! Just watch this clip from a Michael Parkinson interview - one of my favorites.

See what I mean? LOL


  1. I get a "video unavailable," Eddie.
    I'm about to leave to go to church tonight, but when I return, I will try and pull up the video...either here or elsewhere.
    Hugs and smiles,

  2. That one made me smile. :))
    I have never cared for Cassius Clay. But this was a good story...and a good story teller. Thank you for sharing!


Welcome, pull up a chair and enjoy
