Muhammad Ali

During his boxing days, muhammad ali came out with some great quotes, usually before a fight. He said, “I am the greatest”; “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee”; “It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.” Here's a boxer who won heavyweight titles expressing himself through poetry. He often used his rhymes to carry his predictions for his fights.

Poem 1

This is the legend of Muhammad Ali,

The greatest fighter that ever will be.

He talks a great deal and brags, indeed,

Of a powerful punch and blinding speed.

Ali fights great, he's got speed and endurance;

If you sign to fight him, increase your insurance.

Ali's got a left, Ali's got a right;

If he hits you once, you're asleep for the night.
