I was born in 1975. By the time I was old enough to understand the greatness of Cassius Marcellus Clay, he was more of a pop culture icon than a fighter, wrapping up his illustrious career with the Drama in the Bahamas and a loss to Trevor Berbick.
I certainly knew who Muhammad Ali was, however. Everybody did. He’s probably the biggest pop culture legend of his time. And yesterday, the 74-year old Greatest passed away.
