"This man has done everything in the world. Everybody has a Muhammad Ali story. He has traveled the world. We have traveled the world together," she told Inside Edition. 

Belinda was just 17 when she married The Champ. She converted to Islam and changed her name to Khalilah Ali.

The second of Ali's four wives said that if her late husband were alive today, she would tell him: "Thank you for the beautiful adventure and journey."

Muhammad Ali meticulously planned every detail of his funeral before he died.

Thousands filled the Kentucky Exposition Center for the prayer service Thursday.

On Friday, a procession will carry the fighter’s body through the city to a memorial service, where he will be eulogized by President Bill Clinton, Billy Crystal and "Real Sports" host Bryant Gumbel.

Ali and Belinda had four children, including his namesake, Muhammad Ali, Jr.

Inside Edition found him two years ago living in poverty in Chicago doing odd jobs for a living.

A new photo shows his mom fixing his hair before the funeral as he holds a poem he has written to his dad.

“This is a story about going to bury my father, Muhammad Ali. It is sunny not gloomy as you can see. If he was alive he would say ‘even the bees love me.’ Father's Day is just a week away, so I’m going to take this moment to say, I know I’m early but happy Father's Day. I love you, Muhammad Ali, Jr.,” he wrote.
