On Friday, boxing legend Muhammad Ali died at the Honor Health Scottsdale Osborn Medical Center in Scottsdale, Arizona, leaving behind nine children and an unparalleled athletic legacy. Ali had been suffering from Parkinson's disease for years, impairing his cognitive and physical abilities. Over the last two years, he was admitted for various ailments including a urinary tract infection and pneumonia. This time around, he wasn’t able to bounce back from the brink of death. After being admitted to the hospital on Monday, Ali ultimately died of septic shock. He was 74 years old.
Both inside and outside the ring, the boxing legend courted controversy. Even his opponents could agree: He was as animated as he was athletically gifted. Ali’s fighting ability was only paralleled by his warring words against his self-identified enemies.
