Larry credited Ali for teaching him his famous combination. Larry said: “There were so many great fights, and we are all tempted to go on for too long, but early on, I learned so much working as Muhammad Ali’s sparring partner for four, five years.I borrowed it all from Ali. Jab, jab, jab, jab, right hand, left hook. Jab, jab, jab… I watched him, I sparred him, and he did that–so why couldn’t I do it? Ali was one of the greatest fighters of all time.”


Larry also explained about his fight with Ali and what made him the G.O.A.T. Larry said: “I had the pleasure of meeting, eating his food, running on his grounds and people always ask ‘what was it about Muhammad Ali?’ and I try my best to explain it–but, you know, it’s unexplainable, because he did so much of everything.

He taught me so much, and then he came back to fight me in the ring. I took no pleasure in beating Ali.”
