Muhammad Ali, a leading heavyweight boxer in the world, passed away on Friday, 3rd June 2016. An American professional boxer, born on 17th January 1942, completed 74 years and made a great name for the country and for him.
He was not only a heavyweight boxer but also a great writer, his leading book My Own Story and The Soul of a Butterfly, was one of the bestselling books in boxing history. Since early days of his career, Muhammad Ali was always surrounded with controversies inside and outside of the ring. But Muhammad Ali’s death on Friday has made everyone shocked and sad.
Muhammad Ali’s death on Friday was the result of his respiratory complications, according to BBC. During 1984, Muhammad Ali was diagnosed for being positive for Parkinson’s syndrome.
A unique title that Muhammad Ali earned was world heavyweight champion not only once, twice, but thrice in 1964, 1974 and 1978. Muhammad Ali was always ready to face any kind of challenges in his life, and his life was really full of challenges. He was never seen afraid of his opponents.
Being a black man, he also suffered a lot but he never let any opportunity go when he got a chance to speak in public. He faced the camera like a lion and always spoke his mind.
During the war in Vietnam, Muhammad Ali refused to fight and it resulted in for him being suspended from boxing for a very long time. He never wished to have a uniform and covered more than ten thousand miles and kills the innocent people.
Though he was a true Muslim but lived like a true human being respecting everyone who loves the humanity. He was never afraid of saying anything that he thinks is wrong. Once he opposed Donald Trump suggestion to ban Muslim to enter.
Muhammad Ali’s death might be a sad episode for humanity but his philosophy and thoughts will never die. I personally give my salute to Muhammad Ali, the great man of twenty first century.
