New Delhi: It was a match against 3-years-old and the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali was struggling in the ring. His youngest competitor rained blows after blows and knocked the champion down.

 

It is one of the cutest video of Muhammad available on the internet where he is seen ‘struggling’ against a three-year-old boxer. The Greatest, as he was called for his extraordinary boxing skills, lets the kid knocks him down while saying “punch me…punch me.”

Muhammad Ali was suffering from Parkinson’s disease, breathed his last today morning at a Phoenix hospital.

The beloved sports hero, who was battling Parkinson's disease for decades, was admitted to hospital earlier this week following respiratory problems.

Suffering from the illness since a long time, the three-time heavyweight champion had been hospitalized multiple times. The 74-year-old legendary boxer with a magical career of 35 years was considered by many to be the greatest boxer ever.

"After a 32-year battle with Parkinson's disease, Muhammad Ali has passed away at the age of 74," family spokesman Bob Gunnell said.

He spent time in hospital in 2014 after suffering a mild case of pneumonia and again in 2015 for a urinary tract infection.

Ali dominated sports for two decades before time and Parkinson's Syndrome, triggered by thousands of blows to the head, ravaged his magnificent body, muted his majestic voice and ended his storied career in 1981.

He fought in three different decades, finished with a record of 56-5 with 37 knockouts and was the first man to win heavyweight titles three times.
