Muhammad Ali Dead - Boxing Legend Dies at 74

Famed professional boxer Muhammad Ali has passed away at the age of 74 on Friday evening (June 3) in Phoenix, AZ.

Muhammad, who was often referred to as one of the greatest heavyweights in the history of boxing, died after a battle with advanced Parkinson’s disease and a respiratory condition, according to TMZ.

Over the course of his career, Muhammad had 56 wins and was awarded an Olympic gold medal as well as “Sportsman of the Century” by Sports Illustrated and “Sports Personality of the Century” by the BBC. He remains the only three-time lineal world heavyweight champion. In 2005, he was given the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President George W. Bush.

Muhammad is survived by his wife Yolanda Williams and their nine children, including Laila Ali, who also became an undefeated boxing champ.

Our thoughts are with Muhammad‘s family and friends during this difficult time.

    People always forget that he is called Muhammad Ali because he was a coward that became Muslim to try and stop himself being forced to fight the Vietnam war.

    forced to kill innocent rural population in the Vietnam war for absoluttely no reason.

    All soldiers are paid killers.
    Not are heroes.
    Avoid being brainwashed by the government.

    I loved Mohammed Ali for refusing to fight in the Vietnam ‘war’ that takes brains, heart, integrity and extreme bravery. None of the so called wars are for the reasons that are stated they are for Governments to gain control and make their buddies rich via lucrative contracts as in all the invasions in recent history. Loved, loved that guy. Most people don’t carry out independent research via investigative journalists who risk their lives to tell the truth to the populace…sadly a lot of the populace are brain dead….just look at Germany in the 1930s…same thing people blindly following their government and the brave few who think are gagged under the guise of nationalism and patriotism. You were loved Mr Ali and revered for being true in a sea of idiots.

    We have very few true legends left on this earth. Sadly, in this new generation there seems to be none to precede any of them.
