With the death of the greatest sportsman of the 20th century, Muhammad Ali leaves behind a vast estate that will likely be split among Muhammad Ali's children and devoted wife.
The boxing legend who died Friday is survived by his fourth wife, Lonnie, whom he married in 1986, and his nine children, including seven girls and two boys and a brother named Rahaman Ali.
The Kentucky native had achieved much success throughout his incredible decades long boxing career. 
Plus, his support and philanthropy for charities outside of the ring made him a one of a kind man. 
A Forbes article estimates that he had a net worth of at least $50million. It's been reported that his wife Lonnie will act as executor of his will, while his former wives, children and even his brother could join the fight over his legacy and earnings.
Ali earned his biggest payday inside the ring on October 10, 1980 against Larry Holmes. Despite falling by a technical knockout to Holmes, he earned $8million, according to the Los Angeles Times
In one of his most famous bouts called the 'Thrilla in Manila,' the icon earned $6million in the ring against Joe Frazier in 1975.
