I remember this visit.
We were lucky that he touched down at the Enugu Airport. Plenty female airport workers rushed him at the VIP lounge for pictures.
The roads from mainland to New Society, Emene were crowded with people trekking to the airport to behold the World's greatest.

I still have a few Polaroid pictures of this.

Muhammad Ali's downfall began when he allowed Elijah Mohammed and the NOI indoctrinate him into converting and changing his name from Cassius Clay.

He became so haughty that there was zero regard for God.
God can neither share his glory nor be mocked that was why he ensured his gradual nervous breakdown began the day he slammed his head on the ground.

Everything you said is right but for the part that God made sure that Ali had a nervous breakdown

God does not do that sort of evil. He would have gone down to dust anyway. But God is bigger than slamming people's head to the ground and giving them a nervous breakdown.

I love how nation of Islam's ideology assisted in the emancipation of black men and women and helped raising warriors like Khalid Mohammed, Malcolm x, Louis Farrakhan, Leo Mohammed

I love old school boxers

You will be surprised he even visited Abuja. Yes, Abuja. Not what we know as Abuja now. I saw a clip of him on YouTube on the streets of Abuja. You can hear in that clip that he also visited Ibadan. So he didn't just visit Lagos only.

So says a man who will never have 0.0001 greatness that Muhammed Ali had.

It is so easy to throw stones at others whilst hiding behind faceless monikers on social media. And it is quite classless of you to mock anyone on the basis of their choice of religion.

That you are able to sum up the man into his choice of religion shows how narrow your thinking, shows what deficit of knowledge you have of the man and the times he lived in and clearly speaks volumes of who you are as a human being.

Rubbish the best he did was to find Islam, he had been stripped of his belts because he refused to fight in the Vietnam war, and his name Cassius Clay was a slave name to the man from Kentucky, if you have ever lived in the United States you would understand the Champs point of view, a man that embraced Islam and won his heavyweight title back on two occasions against all odds against the imperialist system is a man truly blessed by Allah, you know nothing about the Champ, you are talking of a man on the same level as Mandela and Robert Nesta Marley, the greatest in their fields, long live the Champ, Rest In Peace.
