I will never forget watching those great fights on TV as a young kid, wonderful great memories. I'm glad I saw all that history in my lifetime.R.I.P Champ, your legacy will inspire many more generations to come. One Love! He said about the writing the tribute song,"I was just inspired...I built the track and lyrics flowed quickly on this one. I was struck by how much good things could be said about the great one. He was so inspiring to me as a youth, he made the world stand up and take notice of a positive black man in the media and really listen to his causes. He was a fighter in truth and he punched with words as well. The world has lost a great soul, but the contribution he made to civil rights and the focus he was able to put on the unfortunate suffering people in the world will never be forgotten."
