Legendary Boxer Muhammad Ali is no more pardesi news 1465024467

A towering figure in his prime, the legendary Boxer Muhammad Ali died at the age of 74 years.

The magnificent heavyweight boxing legend, Muhammad Ali (formerly Cassius Clay), 74, a sporting icon of the 20th Century, is no more. His fame has transcended the sport during a remarkable career that spanned three decades. The 3 time world heavyweight boxing champion is considered the greatest heavyweight in the history of the sport. 

There was a famous song created to describe him, "He floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee".

The international sports hero, who had been battling Parkinson's disease for decades, passed away in a hospital in Phoenix, Arizona, where he had been admitted earlier this week suffering from respiratory problems.

"After a 32-year battle with Parkinson's disease, Muhammad Ali has passed away at the age of 74," a family spokesman said. He was suffering from Parkinson, a progressive neurological condition, which slowly robbed him of both his legendary verbal grace and his physical dexterity.

 

He was hospitalized in Phoenix with respiratory problems earlier this week.
