He was truly "the Greatest".
It literally just happened when I made this post, breaking news on ABC7.
Credible sources stating the passing include NBC (quoted), CNN, ESPN, ABC, USA Today, and Seven Network Australia
He is certainly one person that will never be forgotten, and I don't mean with memorials.BREAKING: Muhammad Ali, 'The Greatest of All Time', Dead at 74
by Jon Schuppe, NBC News, Jun 4 2016, 12:16 am ET
Muhammad Ali, the silver-tongued boxer and civil rights champion who famously proclaimed himself "The Greatest" and then spent a lifetime living up to the billing, is dead.
Ali died Friday at a Phoenix-area hospital, where he had spent the past few days being treated for respiratory complications, a family spokesman confirmed to NBC News. He was 74.
"After a 32-year battle with Parkinson's disease, Muhammad Ali has passed away at the age of 74. The three-time World Heavyweight Champion boxer died this evening," Bob Gunnell, a family spokesman, told NBC News.
Ali had suffered for three decades from Parkinson's Disease, a progressive neurological condition that slowly robbed him of both his legendary verbal grace and his physical dexterity. A funeral service is planned in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.

It's very sad that the world of boxing has lost one of its greatest champs.
Ali might be gone but his legacy will not be forgotten.
May Allah bless his soul.

Let me show you just what I'm made of now...
I recommed to watch "Facing Ali" documentary. I do always love the way his opponents speak of him, even Joe Frazier who was his fiercest rival, who even gets very emotional thinking of him and his battle against Parkinson.

My feedback thread
Everyone who knew him, even his opponents in the ring, respected him. I would post the Janazah in his honor but I am not sure I have the right as a non-Muslim and it might cause the thread to get a bit Swampy. Prayers for his family and may he rest in peace. He truly was the greatest.
