Local writer speaks about how Muhammad Ali inspired him

(NEWS10) – Those who were touched by Muhammad Ali are speaking out.

News10ABC spoke to a local writer, who writes about boxing, and even won a Boxing Writer’s Association award.

Michael Rivest said it wasn’t just Ali’s athletic abilities but who he was as a person that inspired him.

“He had the effect of drawing me in first as human that I loved. And only later did I discover the depths of it. But first I was drawn in by the human without any preconceived notions and I think that was a critical piece of it”, said Rivest.
