Kiwi sports broadcaster Keith Quinn says Muhammad Ali was a "beautiful fighter".
Considered by manY to the greatest boxer ever, Ali died over the weekend aged 74.
He called himself the greatest and for years was the greatest - but of course he was more than a sportsperson, he famously became a symbol of the 1960s anti-war movement.
Since 1980 he suffered from Parkinson's disease.
But at his height, he might well have been the most famous person on the planet.
Quinn was a big fan and followed Ali's career professionally.
He talks to Wallace Chapman about Muhammad Ali's career and his visit to New Zealand in 1979.
