The late Hector “Macho” Camacho and other legends were inducted Sunday into the International Boxing Hall of Fame, but the day really belonged to Muhammad Ali.
“I’d like to acknowledge the passing of the greatest of all time, Muhammad Ali,” six-time world champion Sugar Ray Leonard said during the ceremony at the hall in Canastota, New York, NBC station WKTV of Utica reported.
Flags at the museum were lowered to half-staff in honor of Ali, who died June 3 at age 74, leading up to Sunday’s induction ceremony, which started with a moment of silence.
