We are saddened to report that boxer MuhammadAli, who was known as “the greatest of all time,” has passed away tonight at the age of 74. Read on for details.
Mohammed Ali Dead At 74
A family spokesperson for Ali’s family released a statement to NBC News a few minutes ago, stating that, “After a 32-year battle with Parkinson’s disease, Muhammad Ali has passed away at the age of 74. The three-time World Heavyweight Champion boxer died this evening.”
Aside from being a champion boxer, Ali was well known for his quote “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.” He was also known for being anti-war and his views on peace.
This has been a rough year for celebrity news lately, with the death of Prince and David Bowie.
Ali will definitely be missed and our thoughts are with his friends and family.
