He even said-” Maybe my Parkinson’s is god’s way reminding me wat’s important”, He further said “It slowed me down and caused me to listen rather than talk. Actually, people pay more attention to me now because I don’t talk as much.”
Apart from being Loved Ali was a controversial figure
Ali was the most polarising star both in and out of the Boxing ring. He was loved by many but had equal haters s well. After winning his first world boxing championship Ali got converted to Islam which raised eyebrows of many individuals.
