Since his passing this past weekend, Muhammad Ali tributes have been pouring in. But you'll have a hard time finding a better tribute video than the HBO Sports produced piece: "Muhammad Ali: In Memoriam". Watch the video above, or click here to watch on YouTube.
The HBO Sports team always produces excellent content, and this video is no exception. Narrated by the voice of HBO 24/7 Liev Schreiber, In Memoriam takes a look at all aspects of Ali's life, from his rise up the ranks as Cassius Clay, to his controversial politics, to his legendary run in the 1970's. The video sums this incredible life and legacy up with this:
There is no overstating when it comes to Muhammad Ali. He wasn't the greatest because he said he was. He was the greatest because no one else would dare argue otherwise.
Powerful words indeed.
Ali passed away this past Saturday at the age of 74. The former world Heavyweight champion and Olympic gold medalist retired from professional boxing in 1981 with a record of 56-5.
