Muhammad Ali passes away at the age of 74

Muhammad Ali passed away today at the age of 74, throughout his life he lived as a true inspiration, a man who fought for the sake of justice, what he believed in. Muhammad Ali not only broke records in the boxing ring as Heavy Weight World Champion, but also fought just as much for Civil Rights, his freedom to practice Islam and his identity as a Muslim, and the Anti-War Movement during the Vietnam War - even at the cost of prison, his World Champion title being stripped and being denied licenses and visas to continue his boxing career by the US government. Through all of that, he persevered and overcame his adversities, the best to ever do it in the world of boxing, and truly a champion in and outside of the ring.
