Today we thought we were about to lose one of America’s greatest sports icons: Muhammad Ali.
It was reported earlier today that the three-time world heavyweight boxing champion was rushed to the hospital after he fell unconscious at his home in Phoenix, Arizona.
We’re happy to report however, that the greatest of all time is home and doing well.
Ali shocked the world once again with that breaking news.
Ali has been living with the debilitating Parkinson’s disease for the last 27 years, so anytime there’s a health scare involving the champ we all get a little nervous.
Ali has spanned generations and to lose an American icon like him would truly be shocking. Ali was a transformational figure at a time when African Americans needed a symbol of Black bravado.
There’s nothing that Ali has done that hasn’t been documented, from poems to films to books, he’s lived a life that many only dare to dream of and he’s going to keep fighting until the final round.
We’re hoping the champ lives to span another generation, so just to remind you how great he is, take a look at some of his greatest snapshots!
