After a long 32-year battle with Parkison’s disease, the great boxer Muhammad Ali has passed away Friday evening. Ali was 74 years old, and has proven he can fight just as well out of the ring.
According to his spokesman, Ali was able to be with his family at a hospital in Arizona at this time. The three-time World Heavyweight Champion had difficulty breathing, and the doctors gathered the family hours beforehand.
The public has been unbelievably supportive of Ali’s family, cherishing every moment Ali was on this Earth. Today will truly be a sad day in sports as we will be looking back to some of the greatest moments Ali was able to provide for us.
Ali was the most likely the greatest boxer to set foot on the planet, and was also able to become an Olympic champion in his prime. RIP Muhammad Ali.
