    Muhammad Ali's one regret: turning his back on Malcolm X

    Ali wished he had never snubbed his former mentor - but Malcolm X was assassinated before he could say sorry

    It was possibly the one regret he took to the grave, the one thing that not even “The Greatest” could change.

    In May 1964, Muhammad Ali had a chance meeting in Ghana, with his former friend and mentor Malcolm X. And he turned his back on him.

    “Turning my back on Malcolm,” wrote Ali in his 2004 autobiography The Soul of a Butterfly, “was one of the mistakes that I regret most in my life.

    “I wish I’d been able to tell Malcolm I was sorry, that he was right about so many things. But he was killed before I got the chance.”
