Boxing Legend Muhammad Ali passed away today at the age of 74 at a Phoenix-area hospital.

Ali was in the hospital for a few days due to respiratory complications. The heavyweight champion fought a 32 year battle with Parkinson’s disease, which slowly robbed him of his voice and his physical movement.

Although his health took a decline, it did not stop him from speaking out on political issues that mattered to him. In December he voiced his opinion on Presidential candidate Donald Trump: “We as Muslims have to stand up to those who use Islam to advance their own personal agenda,” he said.

Fans of the legend including celebrities have been crashing social media with some of Ali’s most famous quotes and photos from inside the ring.

    Awarded the “Win Anyway” Lifetime acheivement award and recognized for it in the book “Win Anyway ” I believe that was the last award Ali was given while still living? Meeting ali as a young child did so much for my confidence growing up in America during the time period the champ reigned. We must now support the charities Ali started ,and continue to build on what the greatest stood for. Forever loved and never forgotten. Prayers go out to Ali and all those who love him.
