Muhammad Ali - "The Greatest"
Todays sketch is a wee tribute to Muhammad Ali, who sadly passed away this morning at the age of 74.
Myself, growing up in the 1970's and early 80's in Scotland, Muhammad Ali, was one of these 'characters' that everyone admired. Every kid of the 70's used to go around giving little playful jabs, and pretending to be him shouting "Float like a butterfly, and Sting like a bee!"
I was lucky enough to get a pair of boxing gloves when i was little, and these, along with my Superman outfit, were my most treasured possessions!
Both heroes actually starred in DC Comics "Superman vs Muhammad Ali" in 1978, where they had to have a boxing match to save the world!
Here's a link to the backstory over on 'The Museum Of Uncut Funk'.
Definitely two of Earth's finest champions!
Whit's he up tae noo?
