Muhammad Ali passes away aged 74 :(

Quote:
Muhammad Ali has died at the age of 74, a family spokesman has said.
The former world heavyweight boxing champion, one of the world's best-known sportsmen, died at a hospital in the US city of Phoenix in Arizona state after being admitted on Thursday.
He was suffering from a respiratory illness, a condition that was complicated by Parkinson's disease.
The funeral will take place in Ali's hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, his family said in a statement.

Last night I had a dream, When I got to Africa,
I had one hell of a rumble.
I had to beat Tarzanís behind first,
For claiming to be King of the Jungle.
For this fight, Iíve wrestled with alligators,
Iíve tussled with a whale.
I done handcuffed lightning
And throw thunder in jail.
You know Iím bad.
just last week, I murdered a rock,
Injured a stone, Hospitalized a brick.
Iím so mean, I make medicine sick.
Iím so fast, man,
I can run through a hurricane and don't get wet.
When George Foreman meets me,
Heíll pay his debt.
I can drown the drink of water, and kill a dead tree.
Wait till you see Muhammad Ali.

I will always remember not only his boxing but his shoot match with Antonio Inoki.

Makes you wonder what would have been if he had come along 30 years later! We've seen guys with movement like his since but never to this day have I seen a 240lb man with reactions like his. He really was a freak.

One of my favorite childhood memories is the time my dad let me and my brothers stay up late and listen to THE FIGHT OF THE CENTURY, his first fight with Frazier live on the radio with the grownups. Commentators were a lot different back then. They actually described what was happening instead of rambling on with unimportant ****.
We sat in front of the radio and fought over a copy of LIFE magazine that featured him. I was the only Ali fan there. Practically every other white person in America wanted Frazier to whoop his uppity draft dodging ass. I was always the odd one and already a hippy. I thought he was a hero for refusing to fight in Vietnam.

RIP Champ. Thanks for everything.

There was a slight problem when Muhammad Ali got to the pearly gates, apparently there was some dispute over who was the greatest
