Ali steps into the ring for the decision announcement followng Imadeav vs. Griffin. Though his fighter (Imadeav) lost, Ali showers the opponent (Griffin) with a healthy dose of verbal praise and affection. Ali can also be seen urging the two warriors to reconcile. This is a radical departure for Ali, who has been known to attack his fighter’s opponents while waiting in line for crab legs. Ali also praises and hugs Griffin’s team. I think Ali is turning over a new leaf. There’s no way he would intentionally put himself in the camera’s way and phone in a pretend showcase of respect to save his image.
