Happy 70th Birthday, Muhammad Ali

Muhammad Ali celebrated his 70th birthday today.

ESPN honored the boxing legend’s legacy across many platforms.

Read ESPN.com columnist Tim Keown‘s 70 Reasons To Celebrate Muhammad Ali, Dr. Richard Lapchick’s article Muhammad Ali: Ultimate Role Model, and ESPN Deportes’ Carlos Irusta‘s interview with former Ali trainer Angelo Dundee.

Listen to ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike In The Morning‘s tribute.

Ali’s place in boxing history — measured against Mike Tyson — also was fodder for an ESPN First Take debate (see video below) as well as an Outside The Lines reflection.

Ali was the 1997 recipient of the Arthur Ashe Award at the ESPYs.

Happy Birthday, Champ.
