"The Greatest" passes away at 74

New, comments

Muhammad Ali died tonight after respiratory complications.

The great Muhammad Ali passed away last night in a Phoenix-area hospital. Ali had spent the past few days being treated for respiratory problems. The champ is survived by his legendary legacy in and out of the ring. He spoke up against racial prejudice and historical injustice, all the way to the end. Ali will always be remembered for embodying greatness, global humility, and wisdom. Rest in peace, champ.
