One of the greatest to ever step in to the squared circle has unfortunately left us from this world, to go on to a better place.  Muhammad Ali (56-5, 37 KO’s), sadly passed away yesterday, June the 3rd of 2016.  The news was a shocker to the boxing world as well as the world in general, when it was announced that Ali had passed, after his long battle with parkinson disease.  Muhammad Ali, born Cassius Marcellus Clay, sadly passes at the age of 74, but will not soon be forgotten.  Ali was known for being an inspiring, controversial and polarizing figure both outside and inside the boxing ring.  Muhammad Ali remains the only 3 time Lineal World Heavyweight Champion of all time, and I would be surprised if that record was ever broken.

Who can forget when Ali (at the time known as Cassius Clay), knocked out the great Sonny Liston in only his 20th professional fight.  Or when he unfortunately lost “The Fight Of The Century” to Joe Frazier, and then beat him in the rematch “The Thrilla in Manilla”.  Or “The Rumble In The Jungle” when he knocked out George Forman.  “The Great One” has blessed the hardcore and casual boxing fan for so many year, and now that he’s gone, we reflect on all his achievements.  I would like to take this opportunity to replay Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Hits.  Rest in piece champ, you will be missed dearly.

MUHAMMAD ALI  —  GREATEST HITS
