    Ferdie Pacheco, Muhammad Ali's Ringside Doctor, 89

    From NPR: "The President, the Executive Committee, and all the World Boxing Association family regret the death of Mr. Ferdie Pacheco, who was legendary Muhammad Ali's physician," the association said in a statement on Friday. "Pacheco ... was key in Ali's career, he was in his corner since 1960 and accompanied him for great part of his career."

    The most dangerous woman of all is the one who refuses to rely on your sword to save her because she carries her own.

    I thought he had passed a number of years ago! In fact, just last week I had a conversation with someone of the last name and had mentioned Ferdy and he had passed away awhile ago!

    While I was not, am not and never will be a "fan" of Cassius Clay, I came to respect Ferdy.

    I think Howard Cosell said it best...boxing is the only sport where the objective is to intentionally injure someone.
