Personal Quote:

I believe, in the truest sense of the word, that Muhammad Ali is a hero. His presence explodes off the screen. He is a hero in comparison with the so-called icons of today. All athletes today are looking for is a good endorsement deal. There are so few real heroes. Is there anyone that you can really look up to?
