Ali, who had long suffered from Parkinson’s syndrome which impaired his speech and made the once-graceful athlete almost a prisoner in his own body, died on June 3, 2016 at the age of 74.
Since the Ali Mall bears the name of the boxing icon, it is only proper that Ali Mall would exert all this effort to pay homage to Muhammad Ali.
