even the best fighter in the world couldnt make it out of here alive. godspeed to an inspiration!
When I heard he was 74, I was surprised he made it that long.
He's had health issues for a long time.
What a showman. RIP champ.
I remember watching Ali (then Cassius Clay) on TV at the '60 Olympics. He outclassed the competition like few others have. RIP

My dad's favorite athlete.
Rest easy champ.
This is tough for me. He's was always our hometown guy and never forgot his city. Before he was the Greatest, he was the Louisville Lip and he supported countless charities here.
About 5 years ago I walked into the Outback just up the street from me and bam, there sat Ali in the waiting area...about 5 feet from me. Now I've met a few of my hero's over the years; Mario, Nicky, Valentino, and never felt at a loss for words. But when I saw Ali I froze. I had no clue what to say so I just stood there in awe.
As a Louisvillian, he'll always be our champ. Travel well sir.
32 years of being sick. That's a hell of a fight.
An American Icon, "The Greatest"......
Just damn ..... RIP
It ain't cocky if you back it up!!!!! RIP
Not to change the subject…..in their prime….Ali or Tyson?
I was going to say Tyson, pre-Robin Givens. Not even because of his skills, but because of the fear he instilled in his opponents which was almost punch in itself. Then I remembered that Ali beat young Foreman…
