One of them was Brock Lesnar, who when asked about Ali said: “I met Ali once and all I remember when I met him and shook his hand was that he never spoke, at that time, Parkinson’s disease, the disease had taken over.

“But, I just remember when he reached out his hand and he didn’t have to say anything to me, it was just, not a weird vibe, it was such a gracious handshake and it was just very, I can’t even put a word to it.

“So I felt something powerful from the man. I watched pretty much all of his fights, I met him once and he never said a word to me but I did. felt his presence and his power.

“So it was impactful for sure, here’s a guy who’s a boxer who sells tickets, walks the walk and talks the talk. He set the stage, it’s big business, you have to be flashy at the outside and flashy inside.

“It’s a tragedy, my heart goes out to the family, living with Parkinson’s for so many years, very difficult, it’s just a battle in itself, forget what a great champion he was, the man has had to live with Parkinson’s disease for how many years – that’s an achievement in itself.
