The boxing legend died on Friday at age 74 in a Phoenix-area hospital at 9.10pm from septic shock 'due to unspecified natural causes,' family spokesman Bob Gunnell announced on Saturday during an afternoon press conference. We all tried to stay strong and whispered in his ear, 'You can go now. for how fortunate we all are that The Greatest chose to grace our time.'Like everyone else on the planet, Michelle and I mourn his passing.
Gunnell said the family is planning to hold a private funeral on Thursday for the icon, and that a public funeral will be held on Friday in Louisville, Kentucky at the KFC Yum! Gunnel also revealed that the three-time world heavyweight champion fighter did not suffer at the time of his death and said that he wanted people of all walks of life to be able to attend his funeral because he was a citizen of the world. But we're also grateful to God for how fortunate we are to have known him, if just for a while; for how fortunate we all are that The Greatest chose to grace our time.
Later, as his physical powers ebbed, he became an even more powerful force for peace and reconciliation around the world. Michelle and I send our deepest condolences to his family, and we pray that the greatest fighter of them all finally rests in peace.'Ali shook up the world. Ali was admitted to an undisclosed hospital, presumably in Arizona, to be treated for what was initially thought to be a mild case of pneumonia.
We saw a man who said he was so mean he'd make medicine sick reveal a soft spot, visiting children with illness and disability around the world, telling them they, too, could become the greatest. It later transpired that he was suffering from a urinary tract infection.
