Muhammad Ali Death: Boxing Legend, Sports Icon Passes Away at Age 74

One of the greatest boxers and sports icons of all time has passed away.

Legendary heavyweight champion and social icon Muhammad Ali has died, a family spokesman said late Friday in a statement.

He was 74.

Ali had been hospitalized in the Phoenix area this week with respiratory issues. The Paradise Valley Police Department told ABC News that an emergency medical services call was made from Ali's address in the Phoenix area on Tuesday, and the Phoenix Fire Department confirmed it responded to a call for mutual aid for a 74-year-old male with respiratory issues at that time.

Ali retired from boxing in 1981. I never was old enough, of course, to even watch him. My father used to tell me a ton of stories, and he even met him once.

I've always admired Ali after watching a ton of his highlights and realizing how much of a great boxer he was. Not only that, he was amazing even outside of the ring. 

Rest easy, Champ.
