Floyd Mayweather Jr. Pays Tribute To Muhammad Ali – Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. has paid homage to the greatest of all time, Muhammad Ali.
Ali had suffered Parkinson’s disease for most of his post-retirement life, and passed on after respiratory problems on Friday evening at the age of 74.
In a post on Instagram, Mayweather revealed that Ali was a great inspiration for him throughout his career, and sent his condolences to his entire family.
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!
