Muhammad Ali Passes Away At Age 74

Muhammad Ali, arguably the greatest professional heavyweight boxer of all-time, passed away at age 74 late Friday evening in a hospital near Phoenix, Arizona, according to multiple reports.

Ali was in what is widely considered the first “mixed-martial-arts” fight on an international level with his match against Japanese pro wrestling legend Antonio Inoki, which aired via closed circuit television, the early version of pay-per-view television, back on March 8, 1971.

Ali was hospitalized recently due to what is being reported as a respiratory issue after battling severe Parkinson’s Disease for much of his life.

MMANews.com offers its’ condolences to the family and friends of the man who is, without question, The Greatest Of All Time.

R.I.P. Muhammad Ali.
