The widely considered Greatest Heavyweight Boxing Champion of All Time, Muhammad Ali, has died at the age of 74, according to a spokesperson for the family.
The former Cassius Marcellus Clay had been hospitalized for the last week with respiratory issues.
With a legendary boxing career that spanned over 2 decades (1960 – 1981) and boasted a record of 56-5, Muhammad Ali became widely known as one of the most outspoken American athletes in modern sports history.
Ali had been battling Parkinson’s disease since 1984, but continued to make public appearances, including a guest referee spot at WrestleMania 1.
Ali is survived by his wife Lonnie, and several children, the most recognizable of which is Laila Ali, a boxer herself.
We here at the Outerhaven Productions send our condolences not only to Muhammad Ali’s family, but boxing fans everywhere.
