"He was a great fighter; He was a great activist. He was a man that stood on principle. He was somebody to be proud of. They took him out of boxing when he refused to fight in the war, but he made a great comeback. He was a great fighter, but his political beliefs were more important to me."
"I saw some of his fights growing up. He was a mentor and a role model. He fought for a lot of good things like his right not to join the army. He had a great career. He was an excellent boxer, a fighter. He was a great role model and somebody to be proud of."
