Former American boxer Floyd Mayweather has paid a heartfelt tribute to boxing legend Muhammad Ali, who passed away at the age of 74, after losing his final battle at the hands of Parkinson's disease.

Mayweather, who is nicknamed as 'money' more precisely for his crazy spending spree, posted a picture of Ali surrounded by dollars on his Instagram page.

The 39-year-old boxer also wrote a post along with the picture which says, "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 world of sports & entertainment and for the legacy you leave behind! My sincerest condolences to the Ali family!"

The former three-time world heavyweight champion, who was admitted to a hospital in Phoenix, the United States with a respiratory problem, breathed his last surrounded by his family and friends.

Reportedly, Ali's family spokesperson Bob Gunnell has confirmed the news while asking for privacy at this time.

The iconic figure, who also won an Olympic gold medal at the 1960 Rome Olympics, was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in the 1980s.

Ali took retirement from his illustrious career after a defeat against Trevor Berbick in 1981.
