Gallery: A portrait of Muhammad Ali in his less-iconic photographs

He's so mean he makes medicine sick

Muhammad Ali passed away on Friday night at his home in Scottsdale, Arizona but his legacy will live on as an iconic and echoic memory. 

Many of the photos involving the Greatest have and will continue to garner attention for the greatest photos in sporting history, so many more of his photographs might never receive as much attention. 

Here are eight alternative photos that paint the Champ in a different light.
