Ken Buchanan shake’s hand’s with Muhammad Ali

About this memory

4.52 pm – Two Former World Champion Boxer’s in different Boxing Weight Divisions, meet, once again.

Ken Buchanan is holding a boxing top with the word’s ” Muhammad Ali ” marked on the top. Possibly a personal gift to Ken Buchanan from a previous meeting with Ali.

What struck me when seeing Muhammad Ali, was his small hand’s. With his strength speed and height of 6 feet 3 inches, this did not deter him winning the Heavyweight Champion of the World Title 3 – times.

The ” Ali Shuffle ” was a famous series, of speed and agility footwork’s, created by him as a taunting mechanism towards his opponent’s.
