The former boxing champion was known for not only his style, but power to talk. He would referee the main event of WrestleMania I and fought Japanese legend Antonio Inoki in a boxer vs. wrestler match.
WWE issued the following statement:
“WWE is saddened to learn that two-time world heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali passed away at age 74 on June 3, 2016.”
We here at WrestleNewz send our condolences to Ali’s family and friends.
