    50 years ago today, George Chuvalo took Muhammed Ali to a full 15 rounds. He be Canadian, just like BB.
    Nobody had ever taken Ali the entire distance.

    George is just the coolest guy going. He lost TWO sons to substance abuse - so he tours the country speaking about substance abuse, instead of collapsing in and feeling sorry for himself.

    Classy.
