He often comes across as bitter due to the questions that he's asked in interviews. Time and time again it's on sore spots for him.

The things he is actually genuinely bitter about is George Foreman ducking him, lack of respect he got for decades (even being introduced at a fair as George Foreman at one point), and the way Don King tried to rip him off.

I've never seen a bad word said about him as a person by people who have actually met him.
