Your charisma, your charm and above all, your class are all of the elements that will be greatly missed by myself and the world. You are someone that inspired me greatly throughout my boxing journey and words cannot express how great you were as a person! Thank you for everything you've done for Black America, in the the world of sports & entertainment and for the legacy you leave behind! My sincerest condolences to the Ali family!

"Muhammad Ali was The Greatest. Period," the Obama family said in a statement of Muhammad.  "If you just asked him, he'd tell you. He'd tell you he was the double greatest; that he'd 'handcuffed lightning, thrown thunder into jail. But what made The Champ the greatest - what truly separated him from everyone else - is that everyone else would tell you pretty much the same thing."
