Heavyweight boxing legend, The Greatest Muhammad Ali passed away on June 3, 2016 at the age of 74. Ali suffered Parkinson’s disease for more than 30 years, and passed away peacefully at Scottsdale, Arizona yesterday.
Muhammad Ali’s career, as well as his whole life, was a big fight. His astonishing ability to win battles was present in all aspects of his life. Ali fought in the ring, fought for his religious views and beliefs, and finally fought against the Parkinson’s disease, still being able to light the Olympic torch in 1996…
Muhammad Ali’s career was very shiny and unique, because he had the quick style of boxing unlike other heavyweight boxers. He was not an ordinary “strong” athlete, he was unique, and his uniqueness became his clue to success. You may just enjoy the best knock outs of his career and understand what the talk is about…
To conclude, the boxer has an all time record of 56-6, having won WBA, WBC, Linear heavywight and The Ring titles, retaining each on average 15 times. He has been announced No. 1 heavyweight of the 20th century by the World Press.
“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’
“If you even dream of beating me you’d better wake up and apologize.”
“The word ‘Islam’ means ‘peace.’ The word ‘Muslim’ means ‘one who surrenders to God.’ But the press makes us seem like haters.”
“I know where I’m going and I know the truth, and I don’t have to be what you want me to be. I’m free to be what I want.”
“If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it – then I can achieve it.”
“There are no pleasures in a fight but some of my fights have been a pleasure to win.”
Muhammad Ali’s brilliant life and career inspired many to live, to do whatever they like, to go and achieve their dreams… Here is how the sports world reflected on this loss…
