Muhammad Ali passes away at age 74

Tragedy has struck the sports world and the entire globe, Muhammad Ali has passed away at the age of 74.

It was reported on Thursday that Ali was back in the hospital for a respiratory problem and those close to him feared that it was more serious than previous trips from a year ago. The Louisville-born three-time World Heavyweight Boxing champion battled Parkinson’s Disease for over thirty years and doctors believe that it developed gradually over his boxing career.

Two prominent figures that have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease are successful actor Michael J. Fox, and former Detroit Tiger and current color commentator Kirk Gibson. Both are driving forces to raise awareness for the disease.
