First time meeting him was completely random. I was in Barcelona on vacation and happened to see him at a coffee house. I decided to introduce myself and my buddy and I ended up joining him at his table (he was by himself) and chatting for a good 45 minutes. Growing up a boxing fan in the 80's, there was no one (other than Ali) I would have rather met.
One of my favorite items I have in my mancave is a item signed by Iron Mike when I met him at another location. He was a nice very guy from my experience.
