Floyd Mayweather sends his sincere condolences to the family of late Muhammad Ali, describing the deceased former champion as a legend and a true hero that inspired him throughout his boxing career.
The retired undefeated former world champion was one of millions of top global sporting personalities to eulogise Ali, who passed on in the early hours of Saturday in a hospital in USA due to complications associated with Parkinson syndrome.
Mayweather posted the picture above of Ali on his Instagram page stating as follows:
“Today my heart goes out to a pioneer, a true legend, and a hero by all means! Not a day went by entering the gym that I didn’t think of you. 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!”
