Fight to save Muhammad Ali's rural Pennsylvania refuge Updated at
Inside the log gymnasium that was this rustic training camp's centerpiece, in the small room where Muhammad Ali got rubdowns on an old yellow couch, dozens of messages, etched into pine walls like hieroglyphics, tell the story of the legendary boxer's tenure at this remote Schuylkill County hideaway. Dismayed, for example, by a loss six months earlier to Leon Spinks and by what the scale had just revealed, the 36-year-old Ali carved his weight and frustration into the wood while training for the Sept.

He didn't care about it during his life, why should we?

Ali wouldn't have last long in the ring with guys like Tyson Fury, or Buster Douglas, he wasn't that good. Ali even forgot about this place in his latter years, so just tear it down, and build a Walmart, the skook could use another one

It's true he had no muscle mass either. Flabbier than Da Kernal.

This place was nothing more than a BBC worship club. It's where the fetish began.

York woman met Muhammad Ali:'It changed my life'
... nothing compares to the two or three hours she spent in Deer Lake in May 1980.
Nancy Small, as a teenager, met Muhammad Ali at his Deer Lake training camp. It changed her life, she said.
Muhammad Ali, then coming out of retirement, was at his mountainside training camp near Pottsville. And Small's dad got wind that he was there.
So they piled into the family car and headed north. Small, who was then about 14 years old...
"He was all sweaty and stuff and I was nervous," Small said. "My dad encouraged me to go up."
Nevertheless, Small was nervous.
But in minutes that changed. Ali told her to come up to him and she sat on his lap, and then took a photo with him.
The brief encounter lasted all but a couple hours that spring afternoon. But she has held on to that memory for years and years.
From then on, Small, 51, says she opened herself up to everyone, of all races, age and gender.
"I just soared," she said. "All my dreams fulfilled. And it's because of him."
You send your 14yo daughter to sit on his lap..... wow.

Before the strictures of the Black Muslims, there was sex. And lots of it. Here Ali's personal doctor explains why the champ's body was perfectly attuned to the ring, why women found him irresistible and why the man became a symbol of the demolition of racial and sexual taboos

Observer Sport Monthly
"Ali's universal sex appeal. I think Ali broke the barrier in the United States for white women. Before Ali, no black man had totally been desirable to all white women, particularly in the South. As late as the mid-Sixties no one dared try to appeal to whites."
"What we found to our amazement was that there were as many white lovers of Ali as black. Ali had hit a home run. His power base was now all of white and black America. It really wasn't until the first Frazier fight in 1971 that the country seemed to acknowledge that Ali was OK as America's sweetheart."
"I firmly believe Ali and his 'safe sexuality' opened the door on a new era. Ali proved that 'Black is Beautiful; Black is Best.' As I said, just look at him.".

Another Skook mudshark was born. Mostly from her father-with-benefits having a BBC cuckold fetish.
