On January 17, 1942 the most profound boxer ever to step foot in a ring was born. He was born as Cassius Marcellus Clay but later in 1963 changed his name to Muhammad Ali. Muhammad began boxing when he was twelve years old and retired from boxing in 1981 when he was thirty-nine years old. He was a three time world heavy weight boxing champion and was known for how light he was on his feet and his lyrical boasts, which really ticked his opponents off.

Ali received an Olympic golden medal in 1960; six Kentucky state Golden Glove titles, and two national golden glove titles; he was a three-time world heavy weight champion.
