[ Updated ] Muhammad Ali passed way on June 3, 2016. Born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr., Muhammad Ali [ Wikipedia ] is an African American Muslim convert and is generally considered among the greatest heavyweights boxer in the boxing sport’s history. Mike Tyson is probably not far from behind but due to his conviction, Tyson will probably never get the same respect as Ali.
“Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.” is perhaps the most famous quote by Muhammad Ali. Just like Nelson Mandela, many people misunderstood Mandela as a fighter of Apartheid for the blacks, but Mandela is not only against White power, he is against Black power. Everyone is equal and all forms of racism are bad.
Apparently, Rahman Ali (Muhammad Ali’s brother) really needs to check in on his brother more often, because for the second time in less than two years, the family of Muhammad Ali is denying reports by Rahman that the former champ is in dire health and on death bed. Till then, Muhammad Ali is still alive and not dead yet at the time of writing.
