Boxing doesn't appeal to me in the least as a participant sport but as a spectacle I find it disconcertingly compelling. As a sport, it is the rawest there is, if you step in the ring it requires 100% commitment and there is nowhere to hide.
I admire sportspeople for their sport and sporting achievements. Off the 'field', many are found wanting or may be great people but I like to focus on their sport.
Ali was an absolute wizard at his craft. Extremely intelligent at working out just how to beat his opponent. Best ever.
