PADDY’S SAY: A tribute to Muhammad Ali

Share this

Following the passing of sporting icon Muhammad Ali last Saturday, this week’s Paddy’s Say is dedicated to boxing legend Muhammad Ali.

Swindon boxing trainer Paddy Fitzpatrick was one of the fortunate people on the planet to have met Ali and he described him as “a real cool dude”.

Fitzpatrick also recalls one of his first conversations with Ali when the pair discussed “women, boxing and religion” and in that order.

And rather than highlight one particular fight of Ali’s, Fitzpatrick said he simply respected the Louisville man for his overall boxing ability.
