One night I went to see a boxing fight with my coach at Madison Square Garden in New York City .This fight against a boxer whose name I have forgotten I met my next opponent named George Foreman. George Foreman beat this opponent with a KO in the second round , my coach told me to observe his way of fighting and to try to memorize his footwork. After the fight was over I went out and George Foreman called me :
Ali the next one is you and I hope that you will do honor to our compatriots of colour to show them who are the best.
You're right George they owe us respect we must prove to them that we are worth as much as them we will meet again soon to fight goodbye!
