    "Boxing legend Muhammad Ali has died at age 74, according to reports on multiple national news organizations Friday night.

    Earlier this week, Ali was hospitalized for treatment of a respiratory issue. At the time, his spokesperson said Ali was in fair condition and was expected to have a brief hospital stay.

    However, Friday night sources told NBC News and the Los Angeles Times the boxing champ’s condition was “grave.”

    Ali suffered from Parkinson’s disease and in recent years he largely stayed out of the limelight.

    But he once was known not only for his athletic prowess as a boxer but also for his social activism.

    Ali was born as Cassius Clay and in 1960 won an Olympic gold medal as a light-heavyweight. In 1964, he defeated Sonny Liston by KO in the seventh round and became the World Heavyweight Champion. It was also the year he converted and joined the Nation of Islam, changing his name from Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali.

    In April 1967, as a conscientious objector to the Vietnam War, Ali refused induction into the U.S. Army. The World Boxing Association then stripped him of his world title. On June 20, 1967, Ali was convicted in federal court of violating Selective Service laws and sentenced to five years in prison and fined $10,000. He stayed out of prison as his case was appealed.

    In 1990, Ali met with Saddam Hussein in Baghdad to attempt to negotiate the release of Americans held hostage in Iraq and Kuwait. Additionally, in 2011, Ali publicly appealed to Iranian officials for the release of captive hikers Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal.

    One of the most powerful images of Ali came in 1996, when he lit the torch at the Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta.

    In 2005, Ali was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President George W. Bush."

    RIP! I'll never forget listening to the 'Thrilla in Manila' with a radio under my pillow, I'd just entered the USAF and was in basic training at Lackland AFB. I know the TI heard us even though it was quiet hours but I figure he was listening to the fight too. RIP!

    I never cared much for his antics or that he refused to serve our country but, he was a great boxer. Certainly can't take that away from him....RIP, Ali.

    RIP to one hell of a man and boxer. Some of the things he did may not be entirely PC, but ya have to admire a man who stands by his beliefs.
