Muhammad Ali “The Greatest” leaves a legacy for the boxing world

He floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee

    Born under the name of Cassius Clay, but known by millions around the world as Muhammad Ali, is dead at age of 74. “The Greatest” died from complications from Parkinson Disease as the world mourned the passing of the boxing great.
    He came on the world boxing scene as Cassius Clay at age 18 when he won the Olympic Gold Medal in the 1960 Olympics, and went on to be the Worlds Heavyweight Champion on three different occasions. Boxing fans will never forget the “Rumble in the Jungle” with George Foreman or the “Thriller in Manila” with Joe Frazier, or how he won the heavyweight title from Sonny Liston to become the youngest holder of the title in history.
