A Tribute to Muhammad Ali

Posted on October 28, 2016 at 11:42 AM by / 0

Muhammad Ali is responsible for some of the most legendary moments in sports and civil rights history. More than 50 years after he emerged as a Gold Medallist at the 1960 Rome Olympics, Ali remains one of the most recognizable men in history.

His incomparable work ethic, revolutionary techniques, and fearlessness towards standing up for his beliefs, all contribute to the legend that was Muhammad Ali. Among his countless awards and accolades, he was named Sports Illustrated’s “Sportsman of the Century,” GQ’s “Athlete of the Century,” was a United Nations Messenger of Peace, and has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and the Amnesty International Lifetime Achievement Award.

To celebrate the “Greatest Of All Time”- a charity event was held at the famous Gleason’s Gym in DUMBO, Brooklyn where Muhammad Ali trained. The event was hosted by TAG Heuer and Muhammad Ali Enterprises, with all proceeds going to The Muhammad Ali Center.

The honorary event was attended by Lonnie Ali, Muhammad Ali’s past opponents including George Chuvalo and Earnie Shavers, boxers whose careers were inspired by him such as Evander Holyfield, Roberto Durán, and Julio César Chávez.
