The world is in shock as we mourn one of the greatest boxers of all time. Muhammad Ali tragically died on Friday aged 74. The boxing legend died after he was hospitalized June 2 with respiratory issues that were complicated by his long battle with Parkinson’s disease.
Ali first put on his boxing gloves at the tender age of 12. Throughout his 25 year career he picked up Olympic medals and amassed 56 wins – only losing five boxing bouts until his retirement in 1981.
