Respect and courtesy should be given to legends of the sport, if you are a fan therein. If he wants to be called Ali, I say that's what he's called.
Absolutely agree. How does being called by some other name change the the lives of these people that would call him only by Clay? Not an iota of course, but they think they're putting their foot down or drawing some line in the sand by calling him "Clay."
I suppose Ali might be a mite put off by that if he actually knew and had to deal on a daily basis with these jackholes, but I'm sure he sleeps just fine at night despite their sanctimonius disapproval. After all, it wouldn't be the first time he dealt with a bigot.
