      There was only one king of the ring.

      “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. The hands can’t hit what the eyes can’t see.”
      “If you even dream of beating me, you better wake up and apologize.’
      “It’s hard to be humble when you’re as great as I am.”
      “Not only do I knock’em out , I pick the round.”
      “I’m a poet, I’m a prophet, I’m the resurrector, I’m the savior of the boxing world. If it wasn’t for me, the game would be dead.”
      “It’s not bragging if you can back it up.”
      “I’m so fast that last night I turned off the light switch in my hotel room and was in bed before the room was dark.”

      RIP Cassius Clay.
