“Greatest Of All Time” Dies

Friday, June 3, 2016 @ 10:02 PM

Prince George, B.C. – Muhammad Ali has died at the age of 74.

Ali had been admitted to hospital in Arizona earlier this week suffering respiratory problems andALI was placed on life support Thursday night.

The man once described as the most recognized person on earth had been succumbing to the ravages of Parkinson’s disease which he was diagnosed with in the early 1980s.


Ali, who could “float like a butterfly and sting like a bee”, won the Heavyweight Boxing Championship of the world three times.


Another living legend gone too soon! RIP Cassius Clay!

Tyson would’ve done him in if they were in the same time period.

    Not bloody likely.


    Rocky Marciano would’ve taken them both.

He was done in by his boxing career.

One of his physicians said that Ali doesn`t have Parkinson`s disease, but Parkinsonism, or Parkinson`s syndrome, a neurological disorder. Its symptoms include tremor, slowness of movement, rigidity of muscles, problems with balance. It is caused, in his case, by physical trauma to the cells in the brain stem that produce dopamine.

From a report in the Chicago Tribune in 1991:

“CAT and MRI scans of Ali`s brain show other signs of atrophy and injury. A physician who says Ali told him to speak frankly for this book attributes the problems to boxing injuries. He says it is unlikely they all came from one fight but are probably due to repeated blows to the head over time.”

“If Muhammad hadn`t been a professional fighter, none of these problems would have occurred,” one of his physicians says in the new book.


Boxing has lost its King. RIP
