We are still so sad over the passing of Muhammad Ali.
The boxing legend died overnight on Friday night at 74 years old, reportedly due to respiratory issues.
Now, celebs and boxers from around the world and across the spectrum are reacting to Ali’s death, including some of the athletes that were directly motivated and inspired by the Kentucky native and one-of-a-kind athlete.
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 & entertainment and for the legacy you leave behind! My sincerest condolences to the Ali family!A photo posted by Floyd Mayweather (@floydmayweather) on Jun 4, 2016 at 12:00am PDT
