The man who proclaimed himself as "The Greatest", Muhammad Ali, left this world at the age of 74. He breathed his last at a Phoenix-area hospital, where he had spent the past few days being treated for respiratory complications, and left us with his wisdom-filled words to remember him with.
He had seven daughters and two sons.
His great-grandfather Abe Grady was an Irish who had emigrated to the states.
He did that when he had won a gold in 1960 Olympics in Rome when he was 18 years old. His act was to protest against the racism he faced in his town.
This was when he won the heavyweight championship for the first time. The victory had fetched him only $630,000.
But, as they say, greatness never dies.
