no kid gloves summary
Boxing legend Muhammad Ali was
diagnosed with Parkinson's disease
in 1984. In the years since, his ability
to remain optimistic and gracious in
the face of the disease have earned
him a different kind of respect than
his extraordinary boxing talents did.


While many know his public persona, most people don't see the quiet side
of Ali – the side most apparent when
he's at home on his farm in Berrien
Springs, Mich. On a typical day he
signs autographs for charity, visits the
local McDonald's to be greeted by
adoring fans and reminisces in the
barn where he used to train – a place
now filled with posters, memorabilia
and nostalgia from a faded past.
