RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Muhammad Ali died Friday at age 74. In addition to being considered to be one of the world’s greatest boxers of all time, Ali was also an activist for many social issues. On Saturday, tributes from world leaders, celebrities, entertainers, and athletes have been flooding social media.
Today my heart goes out to a pioneer, a true legend, and a hero by all means! Not a day went by entering the gym that I didn't think of you. Your charisma, your charm and above all, your class are all of the elements that will be greatly missed by myself and the world. You are someone that inspired me greatly throughout my boxing journey and words cannot express how great you were as a person! Thank you for everything you've done for Black America, in the the world of sports & entertainmen and for the legacy you leave behind! My sincerest condolences to the Ali family!
