Rip: Muhammad Ali


Recommended Posts

Muhammad Ali, the former world heavyweight boxing champion and one of sport's most influential individuals, has died aged 74.

Ali, who earned the nickname 'The Greatest', suffered from Parkinson's Disease since 1984. He was taken into hospital on Thursday for a respiratory condition and had been being kept in "as a precaution". News of his death was released by his family's spokesman early on Saturday morning (GMT).

Whether he was right or wrong (staying clear of politics) his stance on not getting Drafted required a bit of character, he would of known he wouldn't be sent to the front, he would have been used for PR but he stuck by his guns and took what came his way. I'm not a big one for eulogising online but I do 'off caps' for Ali.

The greatest sportsman that ever lived (in my lifetime anyway) in my humble opinion.  I generally have little to no time for boxing or any sport like it but Ali just raised the sport to another level.  A lot of high profile celebs and sports people have passed away in the last 12 months or so and this has meant a great deal more to me than most for whatever reason.  One of the last true 'giants' of world sport.
