When Muhammad Ali died five years ago it is safe to say that part of boxing’s soul died with him.

He was boxing in his day.

In fact, he was bigger than boxing.

On the five year anniversary of his death many have paid tribute to who many, still to this day, see as the greatest of all times.

Here are some of the rememberance messages so far:

A very unique individual well ahead of his time.

A man that could have done anything he wanted ultimately.

One of very few in history that could do that.

Boxing was lucky to have him.

Rest in peace Muhammad.
