Profile Bio Text
Drew Bundini Brown (March 21, 1928 - September 24, 1987) was an assistant trainer and cornerman of Muhammad Ali throughout the former heavyweight champion`s career, as well as occasional film actor. Brown was born in Midway, Florida and joined the Navy as a messboy at age 13. Discharged two years later, he returned to the United States Merchant Marine, and spent 12 years traveling the world. He later became part of Sugar Ray Robinson`s entourage. Brown was married to Rhoda Palestine Brown. They had one son, Drew Brown III who joined the United states Navy, became a fighter pilot and won numerous awards for his service. He then went on to write a best selling book titled "You Gotta Believe". He is now a nationally known speaker. He was born a Black Jew and was the only one to ever fly off a Navy aircraft carrier. According to the autobiography of singer Ruth Brown (no relation), he was also the true father of her son Ronald David Jackson ("Ronnie"), though he was unaware of this during the boy`s childhood. Brown joined Ali`s entourage in 1963, when the boxer was known as Cassius Clay, and remained with him until his final fight in 1981. Brown was also one of Ali`s speech writers. He wrote certain poems, such as coining Ali`s famous and oft quoted : "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. Your hands can`t hit what your eyes can`t see." that he used to taunt Sonny Liston at the press conference prior to his February 25, 1964 victory over the WBA and WBC champion to claim both titles. In the 2001 Michael Mann directed movie Ali starring Will Smith and Jamie Foxx playing Ali and Brown a scene has Ali kicking Brown out of his entourage for a time after Brown admits selling one of Ali`s championship belts on the street for $500 to feed his heroin addiction. Upon Ali`s comeback fight with Jerry Quarry, Brown shows up to his training camp clean of drugs to beg for his job back; Ali relents when he starts Brown`s poem "Float like a butterfly, Sting like a Bee", Brown joins in and the two finish in unison.
