Well, that can't be scientifically proven or dis-proven. But many, including me, think he was....when in his prime.

Not only was Ali a great fighter, he was a gifted entertainer that captivated the American audience like no other before or since.

I had the opportunity to meet him when he was on a promotional tour selling his new "Ali" cologne in the late 80s. He is such an icon that it remains one of my most memorable experiences.

My best wishes go out to him to get well very soon.

Ali was a great fighter who talked a lot of smack. That was part of his "fight", and part of his show. Props to him.
