Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even.
Today is a sad day not only in the world of boxing, but around the world. Muhammad Ali, after being admitted to the hospital a few days ago, has passed away. Despite his long struggle with Parkinsons, Ali didn't stray away from politics and controversy. His passion for what he believed in still rang strong.
As a boxer, Ali was everything we looked up to. He was confident, outspoken, full of happiness, and an incredible performer in the ring; he was simply the greatest. Today we mourn the loss of someone who inspired a generation of people, young and old. His legacy will not die as there will be other great boxers, inspired by Muhammad Ali himself. Rest in Peace, to the greatest.
