huffingtonpost.com – Liam Neeson is the latest star to pay tribute to Muhammad Ali, who died on Friday at the age of 74.
In an interview with Irish Central, Neeson, who was once an aspiring boxer, spoke about his love and admiration for “The Greatest,” calling him “a giant of humanity.”
“He was my hero from when I was a young amateur boxer, and schoolboy, back in Ireland. I’ll never forget hearing that he had beaten the unbeatable Sonny Liston. It was 1964 and it was a cold, wet February in Ballymena,” Neeson said. “As I walked to school that morning, my feet didn’t seem to touch the ground: my mind was an excited blur, because somehow the world had changed with that victory.”
