Mohammad Ali was usually indulgent with newsmen, but one question that riled him was when he planned to retire. I got the assignment because both boxers were in their mid30's, old at the time for boxers, but they redefined aging. George Foreman would recover the heavyweight crown at the age of 40. Questioning his staying power was offensive to Ali. His trainer manager, Angelo Dundee remarked to newsmen. "They both ran out of gas by the end of the bout. But Ali had an extra tank."
