Big Bad John Lands TKO on Heavyweight Boxing Champ Muhammad Ali aboard Northwest Flight

"Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee"
On a recent Northwest Airlines flight bound for Washington DC, three-time heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali was sitting in the Councilman's seat...when politely asked to move - Ali refused and so John had to rough him up a little. It was all in good fun as Muhammad Ali, the consumate sportsman was more than willing to take the time to have his picture taken with a lifelong fan and admirer.
TRIVIA: Muhammad Ali won his first heavyweight title a year before John was born.
