American boxer : muhammad ali is died at the age of 74

                   Ali won the world heavyweight championship in 1964, when he was just 22 . American citizens took some years to accept that the black heavyweight boxer from Louisville, Kentucky, who had refused on principle to fight in Vietnam and changed his name to join the hated Black Muslims, was the greatest sportsman of the age and one of the world’s most vivid and best-known personalities.
First as Cassius Clay and then as Muhammad Ali, he was idolized and vilified in almost equal measure until he achieved the status of a global icon, being named Sportsman of the 20th Century by Sports Illustrated magazine and Sports Personality of the Century by the BBC.
                   For the last three decades of his life, which ended yesterday at the age of 74, Parkinson’s disease stole from him both the strength and startling beauty of his prime, reducing a supreme athlete to a stumbling (though always dignified) shadow of his former self.
After creating several records, the legendary boxer retired in 1981, having won 56 out of 61 fights during his career
inspiring quotes by legendary Muhammad ali clay :
"After a 32-year battle with Parkinson's Disease he died with his family at his bedside"

"Don't count the days. Make the days count."

"Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them, a desire, a dream, a vision."

"It isn't the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it's the pebble in your shoe."

"When you can whip any man in the world, you never know peace."

"Silence is golden when you can't think of a good answer."

"Live every day like it's your last because someday you're going to be right."
