He was a man driven by his ambition to be the best and against all the odds went on to become the greatest boxing fighter of all time, a sporting legend that to this day is loved throughout the world. Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr. first got involved in boxing at the age of 12 after being left fuming when a thief stool his bicycle. He told the officer he was going to "whup" the thief. The rest, as they say, is history. Following an unrivalled amateur boxing career which concluded with him winning the gold medal at the 1960 Olympics thereafter Clay started his professional career. Remaining unbeaten through to 1963, Clay became the main challenger for Sonny Liston s Heavyweight Championship title. Hailed as one of biggest upsets in boxing history Clay won the fight against all odds becoming the youngest boxer to take the World title. Converting to Islam and changing his name to Muhammad Ali in 1964 Clay courted national controversy by refusing to draft into the US army for the Vietnam War. As a result his boxing license was revoked from 1967 to 1971 and he was banned from fighting during which time he continued to voice his opposition to the war across the nation. On having his license re-instated in 1971 Ali went on to have some of the greatest boxing matches in the history of the sport. Three gigantic battles with Joe Frazier including The Thriller in Manila, George Forman in the Rumble in the Jungle as well his famous clashes with the likes of Ken Norton, Larry Holmes and Trevor Berbick to name but a few. In 1978 Ali achieved the ultimate accolade by beating Leon Sinks to regain the World title for the record breaking third time. An incredible achievement that remains unsurpassed to this day. Ali retired in 1981 after a number of fighting defeats that in many people s eyes should have never taken place and in 1984 was diagnosed with Parkinsons disease
