Donegal boxer recalls being on same bill as Ali at Croke Park


A former Donegal professional boxer was on the undercard when the legendary Mohammed Ali came to Dublin in 1972 to take on Al Blue Lewis at Croke Park.

Paddy Doherty, a national senior champion and Commonwealth bronze medal winner in 1971, turned professional and won 14 of his 16 fights.

On Saturday Sport Chris Ashmore spoke to Paddy and asked him for his thoughts on Ali and the passing of a world sporting legend.
