Muhammad Ali was the man who took the world by the storm. Hailed as one of the greatest and if not the greatest boxer to have lived, Ali definitely left a mark in the history of the sports and the world. His insane record of only 5 losses is no joke either.

Muhammad Ali has been suffering from Parkinson's disease since 1984. After fighting with the disease for over 3 decades, Ali died on this deathbed on 3rd July. There was no one who did not mourn his demise. From his opponents to his fans, the entire world hailed this boxer one last time. His entire family was right beside him in his final hours bidding him farewell.

Ali had been married four times and had nine children and each and every one respected Ali.

One of Muhammad Ali’s daughters Rasheda took to twitter stating that his father was the greatest man that ever lived. Together with the caption, she had posted a picture of them

According to his daughter Hana Ali, although his organs had stopped working, his heart was beating for 30 minutes. His entire family whispered in his ear bidding him farewell.

"Our hearts are literally hurting," Hana Ali wrote on Twitter "But we are so happy Daddy is free now. We all tried to stay strong and whispered in his ear, 'You can go now. We will be can go back to God now.' All of us were around him, hugging and kissing him and holding his hands, chanting the Islamic prayer."

Similarly, Asaad Ali, his son from his fourth marriage also gave tribute to his father, via his twitter. He posted the picture of Ali along with a caption which depicts how grateful he is to his late father.

Ali had vast confidence in his skill. Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee was definitely not some random quote Ali made up. It signifies his fighting style, his elegance and the ferocity with which he puts his opponents down. Ali has fought every heavyweight champion in his era and defeated them. That’s the mark of the fighter who has concurred everyone.


Muhammad Ali was not the greatest man because his fans or his opponents said so. Ali was the greatest because he concurred with it. For Ali, he was the greatest. Period!
