Muhummad Ali had a thing for cockroaches

Ali2 In the retrospectives of Muhammad Ali's illustrious career, his enthusiastic promotion of D-Con roach killer is rarely mentioned, even though his face appeared on the box. Not only that, in 1980 he took time out from whaling on the heavy bag to celebrate D-Con's effect on roaches in this TV commercial. Apparently, his weakness was opponents who have more than two arms and two legs. So, it's a good thing he's not trying to break in as a professional fighter today. He'd have a tough time handling the likes of Goro. Via YesButNoButYes.
