Muhammad Ali not only was the greatest heavyweight fighter of all time, he was a crusader for the oppressed, a transcendental entertainer, and the conscience of a nation.

We devoted our full hour to remembering Ali, who died Friday, with insight from expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, boxing historian Christopher James Shelton, and host Dennis Taylor.

The memories, the stories, and the opinions are wall-to-wall in this eulogy of one of the best-known people in history. RIP, Champ.

The sixth-greatest heavyweight in boxing history (Ring Magazine), George Foreman, joined us Sunday for a spectacular retrospective on a big, amazing life.

Foreman told us what it was like to face machine guns at a Venezuelan airport when he tried to leave after the Norton fight, and also talked about ... reading to Sonny Liston ... the lightning combination Ali used to put him down in Zaire ... knocking out undefeated world champions Joe Frazier and Michael Moorer 21 years apart .. what it was like to watch his daughter box ...the Svengali talents of Angelo Dundee ... the come-to-Jesus moment that turned him from puncher to preacher after the Jimmy Young loss ... and (believe it or not) much, much more.

This was a pretty special conversation with a member of boxing's Mount Olympus.

The George Foreman interview is preceded by a thorough breakdown of the Pacquiao-Bradley weekend by expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti.

  Bill Caplan's first gig in boxing publicity was for an ex-champ-turned-promoter named Joe Louis.  He was marooned for two months in Zaire with George Foreman prior to the Ali fight. He once stretched out in the parking lot of a Korean restaurant to prevent Lupe Pinto's station wagon from leaving a press conference. The man of a million stories was our guest on The Ringside Boxing Show on Oct. 9, 2011, for a remarkable half-hour interview. Enjoy!
