He is obviously the greatest boxer to grace the ring, but he his impact was felt around the world.

Also, at Stanford University, their is a rape case that is all in the news about Brock Turner, who was found raping a young woman by a dumpster and found guilty by the Jury, but the Judge only gave him 6 months.  The judge said that jail would destroy the young man and since he had a squeaky clean record so he decided to be lenient on the young man and give him a short sentence (even shorter with good behaviors. This is wrong on so many levels and we discuss this..
