Pastor Adeboye: Muhammad Ali Was My Hero, The Day I Cried For Him


The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Friday, described the late American professional boxer, Muhammad Ali, as his ‘hero’.

The cleric, who used to be a boxer, said he once cried over the health status of Ali, who died in 2016 at the age of 74.

Adeboye spoke at the virtual February 2021 Holy Ghost Service of the church with the theme, ‘God Bless You (2)’.

The 78-year-old cleric said, “It is one thing to be a champion, it is another thing to still be a champion. I will illustrate this by using Mohammad Ali of blessed memory.

“He was my hero, incidentally, we were born the same year and I was a boxer too; not of his class but I followed every fight that he fought. At least beginning from Sonny Liston, I can tell you every person that my hero fought.
