On June 3rd 2016 the world lost a legend. Muhammad Ali passed away at the age of 74. Ali died Friday at a Phoenix-area hospital, where he had spent the past few days being treated for respiratory complications.
He called himself “the greatest” but in real life was a humble man. A good friend of GM George Dillman they share many years working together. I had the privilege of hear the story’s one night at the Muhammad Ali Train Camp in Reading PN.
Ali had a great influence on my younger life. He showed the world with hard work you can rise to the top.
Here are a few links on his life, and death.
We mourn the loss of a man who changed the boxing world. May he rest in peace.
