This might sound weird, but I'm glad he lived as long as he did. Same goes with Magic Johnson. To bring so much awareness to a disease you have, with the honor he did, is legendary. I am way too young to see any of his boxing live. I still know a lot about the man without ever watching the Will Smith movie.
