One of them was Brock Lesnar, who when asked about Ali had the following to say: “I met Ali once and all I remember when I met the man and shook his hand was that he never spoke. , at that time Parkinson’s disease had taken over.

“But I just remember he held out his hand and he didn’t have to say anything to me, it was just, not a weird vibe, it was such a graceful handshake and it was just whole, I can’t even get a word out of it.

“So I felt something powerful from the man. I’ve seen pretty much all of his fights, I met him once and he never spoke a word to me, but I felt his presence and power.

“So it was definitely impactful, here’s a guy who’s a boxer selling tickets, walking and talking. He set the stage, it’s big business, you have to be flashy on the outside and flashy on the inside.

“It’s a tragedy, my heart goes out to the family, to live with Parkinson’s for so many years, very hard, that’s just a struggle in itself, forget how great a champion he was, the man had to live with Parkinson’s for how many years? That is an achievement in itself.”
