This is a legend of Cassius Clay, the most beautiful fighter in the world today.
He talks a great deal and brags indeedy, of a muscular punch that is incredibly speedy.
The fistic world was dull and weary, with a champion like Liston things had to be dreary.
Then someone with colour, someone with dash, brought fight fans all running with cash.
This brash young boxer is something to see, and the heavy weight championship is his destiny.
(Muhammad Ali, 1963)
