“Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even.” – Muhammad Ali

For the past couple decades that fight for Ali have been short of even. Dubbed one of the greatest boxers to walk the planet. Muhammad Ali (74) for years has been battling health issues and last night, surrounded by family the boxing hero passed due to respiratory issues.

Born Cassius Clay Jr., Ali was an Olympic gold medalist, and the first three time heavyweight boxing champion. Considered the greatest heavyweight in the history of the sport. Ali was one of the most inspiring and polarizing athletes in the world. Known not for just his skills in the ring but Ali was a dedicated wordsmith. Announcing himself as the “Greatest” it soon stuck as no one could deny he truly was. The creator of many inspirational quotes and some of the best trash talk we’ve ever heard at his time, Ali was not only a boxer but an entertainer. It is with a heavy heart that we announce his passing. A legend.
