Muhammad Ali - widely acknowledged as the greatest heavyweight boxer of all time - has died at age 74.
The boxing legend has a special place in Filipinos' hearts ever since his epic final showdown with Joe Frazier at the Araneta Coliseum in 1975 which was dubbed as Thrilla In Manila! He was also a huge worldwide inspiration for his champion spirit - not just inside the ring but in life's battles especially when he was afflicted with the debilitating disease Parkinson's Syndrome.
But did you know that the original version of "Greatest Love Of All" by George Benson was actually from the soundtrack of Muhammad Ali's 1977 biopic The Greatest? The song eventually became more identified with Whitney Houston when she recorded it in 1986, but the late diva got the chance to sing it for Ali during his 50th birthday celebration in 1992. Check it out in the video below!
