First learnt of Ali in Children's Own

I send condolence to the family of the late great Muhammad Ali. He was the most influential human to walk this planet in my lifetime.

I first read about him while I was attending primary school. I had read of him in The Gleaner's Children's Own magazine. From that day, I have been one of his most ardent supporters.

Needless to say, I was in the minority with my belief that he would triumph against Sonny Liston in 1964.
