Muhammad Ali: 'Greatest' boxer ever lived

The former world heavyweight boxing champion, one of the world's best-known sportsmen, died at the age of 74 at a hospital in the US city of Phoenix, Arizona,due to a respiratory illness, a condition that was complicated by Parkinson's disease. After being admitted on Thursday.
The funeral will take place in Ali's hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.
Born Cassius Marcellus Clay in 1942, Ali shot to fame by winning light-heavyweight gold at the 1960 Rome Olympics.
Ever after that he was unstoppable.
He was nicknamed "The Greatest", the American beat Sonny Liston in 1964 to win his first world title and became the first boxer to capture a world heavyweight title on three separate occasions.
Crowned "Sportsman of the Century" in the year 1999 by Sports Illustrated and "Sports Personality of the Century" by the BBC, Ali was noted for his pre- and post-fight talk and bold fight predictions just as much as his boxing skills inside the ring.
He eventually retired in 1981, having won 56 of his 61 fights.

He faced his first professional defeat by Joe Frazier in the "Fight of the Century" in New York on 8 March 1971, only to regain his title with an eighth-round knockout of George Foreman in the "Rumble in the Jungle" in Kinshasa, Zaire (now Democratic Republic of Congo) on 30 October 1974.

Below are few quote by Ali which make him eternal.

"Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee."
"He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life."
"The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life."
"Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth."
"I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was."
"I know where I'm going and I know the truth, and I don't have to be what you want me to be. I'm free to be what I want."
"The man who has no imagination has no wings."
"It isn't the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it's the pebble in your shoe."
"Silence is golden when you can't think of a good answer."
"It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up."

Ali, you will be missed. #RIP
