Yesterday, The world lost a legend, the champion of boxing. Muhammad Ali was known as the three time heavy weight champion boxer. I can honestly say I didn't grow up "fan girling" over him but I hear a lot of great stories about him. My boyfriends uncle was a boxer as well and he was slightly close with Muhammad, so I gained a lot of knowledge from them. Everyone said that he was a great guy and that his main battle was outside of the ring. Muhammad had been battling with a respiratory illness.

What I found very interesting about Muhammad was that he was a very vibrant individual. He was not afraid to speak his mind and take a chance. I actually watched a couple of his boxing videos and I must say that he was a very interesting boxer. I'm not really into boxing like hat but I can say that I would attend his matches. It's really sad that the world is losing a lot of legends back to back but I can say that it's opening up so much knowledge to my generation and so on. I learned so much about what happened back in the time he was boxing and trust me when I say that America was battling with each other. Muhammad believed in peace and he didn't agree with Americans going to Vietnam to fight with each other in war. He basically said that the other countries are poor just like us, so why fight when we are in the same predicament. May he rest in peace!
