But to say this is to omit the other half of a great story. Mohamed Ali these days is a totally different man. The times when he humiliated his challengers with his swift knockouts inflicting heavy damage are gone, but not necessarily missed. Paradoxically, Mohamed himself was neither hateful nor vindictive as demonstrated by his generous and kind acts towards all people, specially as he grew older. To him boxing was a technical and strategic challenge and not a way to hurt his foes. That is why he almost never said a bad word about his opponent after a fight but instead he evaluated his performance on a strictly technical basis.
To understand Mohamed Ali we need to realise that his life consisted of two distinct phases. The first phase was purely devoted to his athletic performance in which he was considered the greatest heavy-weight boxer in the world . Those were the years of glory for which he became known from Asia to America. Interestingly, however, the second phase was dominated by spiritual devotion. That is when Mohamed converted to Islam and became emotionally and intellectually a devout Muslim. This once-devastating boxer now kneels down and prays to God (Allah) five times every day. He hates no body and wants to help every body. He now regrets some of the cruel things he had done to his foes.Read more ›
