Muhammad Ali Explains His Greatness

(YouTube link)

If you are only familiar with Muhammad Ali in his later years, suffering the effects of Parkinson’s, here’s a reminder of what a silver-tongued self-promoter he was in his prime. In this press conference at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in 1974, a few months prior to his world championship fight with George Foreman, Ali explains how good he is, in terms that can only be described as poetry.

I have wrestled with an alligator
I done tussled with a whale
I done handcuffed lightning
Throwed thunder in jail
