(June 6, 2016 – Dallas, TX) On Monday morning nationally syndicated radio host Tom Joyner shared personal stories of his special relationship with Muhammad Ali.

Over the weekend Tom Joyner released the statement below on the passing of his friend:

Even though Howard Cosell once publicly referred to me as a “hanger on,” my days as part of the Champ’s camp were some of the most memorable.  You can’t be that close to Ali without learning something confidence, independence, diligence and excellence. To have earned his respect, trust and friendship meant a lot to me. Through it all he remained larger than life. His body failed him but it was the heart of a champion that made him great.
