    Default Boxer Jimmy Ellis, Ali's Friend who won heavyweight crown, dies at 74

    One of the great overachievers. Jimmy was really a blown up middleweight who won the heavyweight title.

    He could hold his own or more on pure skill, with any of the bigger guys except the very top level greats like Ali and Frazier. RIP.

    And yet, the shell of what used to be Muhammad Ali, still "lives" on. R.I.P. Mr. Ellis.
