Mohammad Ali Dies at 74

Agency Report

We have lost a true legend. Boxing great Muhammad Ali passed away at the age of 74 on June 3, and we are absolutely devastated about it.

Muhammad Ali has died, his rep confirmed in a statement.

“After a 32-year battle with Parkinson’s disease, Muhammad Ali has passed away at the age of 74. The three-time World Heavyweight Champion boxer died this evening,” family spokesperson Bob Gunnell told

The statement also said, “Muhammad Ali’s funeral will take place in his hometown of Louisville, KY. The Ali family would like to thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers, and support and asks for privacy at this time.”

This sad news comes after Muhammad was rushed to the hospital on June 2 for a respiratory issue. He was determined to be in fair condition following the hospitalization, according to his rep, but has now succumbed to the illness.

However, this was not the first time the former boxer has had health issues. He spent time in the hospital in Dec. 2014 after suffering a bout of pneumonia, and found himself back there in Jan. 2015 to be treated for an infection. Fans feared his death would actually come much sooner than now, too, because in Feb. 2013, his brother gave an interview claiming Ali couldn’t speak and would be dead in “days.” His daughter refuted the statement at the time, though.
