Boxing legend Muhammad Ali who was hospitalised for a respiratory issue earlier this week, has died. The boxer was 74 years old.
Born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. on 17 Jan 1942, in the USA., Ali learned to box after his bicycle was stolen when he was 12 years old. When young Clay vowed to “whoop the behind” of the thief, a local police officer encouraged him to learn to box to channel his energy.
At his peak in the 1970s Ali was among the most recognizable faces on Earth and became to be known as “The Greatest”. In 1973, Ali fought one of his sparring mates Tony Doyle in an exhibition match here in Singapore.
Tweeting about the demise of the legendary boxer, George Foreman, a former heavyweight boxer who fought Ali, said: “A part of me slipped away, the greatest piece.”
