Muhammad Ali dies at 74
Muhammad Ali, the legendary boxer who proclaimed himself “The Greatest” and was among the most famous and beloved athletes on the planet, died Friday in Phoenix, Arizona, a family spokesman said.

Ali, 74, had been at a Phoenix hospital since Thursday with what spokesman Bob Gunnell had described as a respiratory issue.

The three-time heavyweight champion also had battled Parkinson’s disease since 1984.

Laila Ali “truly appreciates the outpouring of love for her family, as she spends quality time with her dad,” a statement issued by her business manager said.

The boxing legend also was hospitalized in January 2015 with a urinary tract infection.
