    George Foreman was the oldest to win the heavyweight championship when at age 45 he knocked out champion Michael Moorer in the 10th round. Here he appears in his last fight at age 48 against Shannon Briggs, a fringe contender who would later fight for and win a version of the heavyweight title (WBO). Although he 'lost' the fight by decision, he was able to put on a masterful boxing display while dominating the younger man. As the decision is announced, Briggs is the most surprised person in the arena. Foreman later exhibits the class and humility that is largely missing from today's 'celebrity' professional athlete.

    Billed by detractors as "Two Geezers at Caesars" the Foreman-Cooney match-up was an intriguing power play between the underachieving 'Long Island Left Hooker' Cooney against the comebacking 'Big George' Foreman who came to fame in the '70s by bouncing Joe Frazier and Ken Norton around like balls while losing to the master psychologist/boxer Muhammad Ali. In a brief, action packed fight that is better than most ANYTHING related to boxing today, these two legends show us why the Heavyweights should be the glamour division in boxing.

    @Rodney Fife it is similar to the story about CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) with NFL trying to suppress Dr. Bennet Omalu's theory and research. I mean, it is not that drastic but society, specially organizations should not be involved in terminating big research or investigations on health, it is this type of economy that we have and with help of the law (or absence of it) there's something that needs to be done. Anyway, regarding this article it was very interesting and I also think that awareness on stress related diseases should be raised even more.
    Justin Thomas
    09/06/2016 #3 Justin Thomas
    Really great share @Rodney Fife. Raising awareness of the potential damage that stress can have on the individual especially repetitive stress can be a rather taboo subject in allot of society - we should be able to just roll with the punches (apologies I wrote that before I thought of it!) but that's really just not the case. I'd be interested to read more about the possible links between Ali and stress relating to his Parkinson's disease if you decide to post more. Thanks for sharing.

To live for what we believe in and to be able to practice our beliefs is truly challenging, when we are constantly trying to oppose each other rather that getting along with each other.

I loved his use of a piece of sand for every thousand years. I bet he blew the audience away because they probably weren't expecting such a long and well thought out answer. He was iconic- yes because of his career in boxing but also much of what you wrote about that we never heard much about over the years. Your points on diversity- I couldn't agree more. This was so well written and exceptionally moving. It moved me to tears. Thank you!

    this one man made more of an impression on society then the Beatles Managed as a collective, a true inspiration and an amazing man. he was a wordsmith, a poet, a fighter (not just in the ring), a leader, A Hero. He will be forever missed and forever remembered in history! He fought Parkinson´s for years and now he finally gets his peace. Rest well Sir, your fight is finally over.

    I´ll finish on a Spoken poem by the man himself, quoted from before his first championship fight with Sonny Liston in 1965 after winning 19 straight fights to get the title shot.

    "Now clay swings with the right, what a beautiful swing,
    And raises the bear straight out of the ring,
    Liston is rising and the ref wears a frown,
    For he can't start counting till Liston comes down,
    Now Liston disappears from view the crowd is getting frantic,
    But our radar stations picked him up somewhere over the Atlantic,
    Who would have thought when they came to the fight,
    That they'd witness the launching of a human satellite,
    Yes the crowd did not dream when they laid down their money,
    That they would see a total eclipse of the sonny"

    RIP Muhammed Ali, the greatest of all time

    I certainly know Ali was a master marketer but even he got it wrong some times, especially underestimating the effects of the "gorilla in manila" remarks left on Joe Frazier. "Float like a butterfly and Sting like a bee" is one of trademark lines but of course there was so much to Ali that made him meaningful to an entire world - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3HPSxWdjD0 the atmosphere around the Foreman fight was not simply marketing, it was magic and meaning - no marketer could do that - only a great man. Young people today will know his part in civil rights, his status in the world and his principles - that is what young people see not "float like a butterfly -sting like a bee". Young people are rejecting certain fighting attitudes that we adored, this is seen in millennial attitudes about bullfighting http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2015/08/bullfighting-colombia-animal-rights/400076/ and http://progressivespain.com/2015/10/25/bullfighting-on-the-wane-in-spain-as-youth-no-longer-identify-with-once-national-pastime/ As Ali passes the transformations he was a part of are now passed to this generations and for this generation meaning matters and that is why to them Ali will matter. For you and I we can also appreciate his marketing genius. The man may have called himself the greatest as a reference to the box - but the world call him the greatest for his spirit.
