Never been a better shit talker.

That Ali is one Bad Mother if lightning and thunder don't stand a chance against him.
If he had been shy and quietly spoken, do you think he would have made a) more money or b) less money?
There is an actual reason why fighters talk smack, do crazy shit at weigh ins etc.

I read about when Will Smith was playing him in "Ali", and Smith got absolutely into the zone and was spending the day in character, trash talking in rhyme, and Ali himself watched from one corner of the room and said "Was I really that goofball when I was that age? Don't matter, I was the Best."
He's certainly not the best athlete ever, or even best boxer, but he's The Best. Not just because he said he was, or because he was able to fit 4 boxing careers into 1 lifetime, but because he said he was the best and he made it STICK.
ps. My dad lost $500 betting against Ali once, because "George Foreman had arms the size of trees". Yeah but Ali had ROPE-A-DOPE.

I wish more fighters would copy the charismatic, witty part instead of just the bragging. Anyone can talk shit but not everyone can make it rhyme.
You can hear him slurring. 1974
