REMEMBER ALI: WHEN THE WORLD LOST ONE OF ITS GREATEST
Fri, 05 Jun 2020
Muhammad Ali died at the age of 74 on today’s date, June 3rd, four years ago.
Aptly nicknamed ‘The Greatest’, boxing heavyweight champion, humanitarian, philanthropist, and civil rights leader Muhammad Ali was born in Louisville, Kentucky. And Ali chose his hometown as his final resting place.
The memorial’s inscription reads: “He took a few cups of love, he took one tablespoon of patience, one teaspoon of generosity, one pint of kindness. He took one quart of laughter, one pinch of concern, and then he mixed willingness with happiness, he added lots of faith and he stirred it up well. Then he spread it over a span of a lifetime and he served to each and every person he met.”
Muhammad Ali is the virtual ambassador of the World Boxing Super Series, and Ali gave his blessings to the WBSS and agreed to give his name to its prize, The Muhammad Ali Trophy. The trophy was created by the late world-renowned artist Silvio Gazzaniga who also designed the iconic FIFA World Cup Trophy.
