    Tranquil may well be correct. Floyd's poor reading is very unlikely to be in any way related to 'brain injury from boxing'. For example, when he's building up to a fight, he never stops talking to the camera, his friends - anyone who'll listen.

    The thought also occurs that he might be Dyslexic. That apart, perhaps he never bothered much in school....a shame really, if true because he loses out on so much great literature/writing/learning.

    yeah i dont see a connection between him not being able to read and brain damage. he talks perfectly fine when he isnt having to read. he just sounds illiterate.

    TBH- who gives a ****. dude cant read. he still made more last year than 99% of people on this planet. in fact i dont see what pointing out that he cant read is even supposed to prove. that you can be illiterate and still become a legend? not sure thats really a message to spread. 50 cent can from what ive seen barely open his fucking mouth to speak and yet nobody is harassing him about that.

    Well, Ali was always a poor reader. It resulted in epic TV when he was being interviewed by Michael Parkinson on BBC in the early 1970s and he invited Ali to read an excerpt from a book. Ali went on the attack, surprisingly so, but the truth is that he was embarrassed to be asked to read in front of an audience and on TV.

    Angelo Dundee later remarked on it his bio (poor book, really) informing that it was a serious mistake to ask Ali to read. As Ali himself said when he failed the intelligence test for the US Army, "I said I was the Greatest, not the smartest".

    It is also kinda hard to read stuff out aloud rather than just read. Two different skills.

    Yeah. I knew plenty of people in school who were by no means illiterate, but just were really comically uncertain about themselves when reading to an audience.
