The world continues to mourn the demise of late boxing legend, Muhammad Ali who passed away today at the age of 74 after being on admission briefly at a Phoenix hospital.
Before his death, Ali already wrote down how he’ll want to be remembered when he dies.
In his autobiography titled ‘The Soul of a Butterfly‘ published in November 2004, Muhammad Ali wrote, ‘I would like to be remembered as a man who won the heavyweight title three times, who was humorous, and who treated everyone right. As a man who never looked down on those who looked up to him, and who helped as many people as he could.
‘As a man who stood up for his beliefs no matter what. As a man who tried to unite all humankind through faith and love. And if all that’s too much, then I guess I’d settle for being remembered only as a great boxer who became a leader and a champion of his people, And I wouldn’t even mind if folks forgot how pretty I was’.
