Surname which he called his his slave name and would be known as cashes X until Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad gave him a holy name that name Muhammad Ali was bestowed on March 6th 1964 this caused quite a stir and got people talking he decided to switch his

Name from Cashes Clay which he considered his slave name to Muhammad Ali a name bestowed upon him by his spiritual Mentor Elijah Muhammad Ali’s transformation and new name were a big deal during a time when there was a lot of tension around race in the United States Ali’s association with the Nation

Of Islam which supports black empowerment and opposes white supremacy made him a key figure in social and political discussions he stood tall and proud capturing the hearts of African-Americans who saw him as a powerful symbol of strength and Defiance but Ali’s most talked about moment happened in

1967 when he said no to joining the US Army during the Vietnam war he did this because of his religious beliefs and his opposition to the the war his famous words I ain’t got no quarrel with them Viet Kong became a powerful slogan for the anti-war movement and made him even

More of a social activist because he said no Ally got arrested found guilty of avoiding the draft and lost his boxing titles he was looking at 5 years in prison but he got to stay out while they appealed the conviction pretty lucky huh alli’s boxing license got

Suspended so he took a break from fighting for almost four years when he was at the top of his game bummer allly had a tough time during this period period it hit him hard in the wallet and also hurt his reputation as a boxer but it also made him a cool symbol of

Standing up against the Vietnam War and unfairness Ali’s conviction got overturned by the US Supreme Court in 1971 and he made a comeback to the ring he made an epic return with two legendary boxing matches the fight of the century against Joe Frasier in 1971 and The Rumble in the Jungle against

George Foreman in 1974 allly got beat by Frasier at first but then he came back back strong and shocked Everyone by beating Foreman in The Rumble in the Jungle he became the champ again Ali used a clever strategy called the ropa doe he let Foreman exhaust himself

Before making his move and ended up winning by knockout in the eighth round seeking to generate positive publicity for his country zier’s dictatorial president mbutu C SEO paid each fighter $5 million to Stage the fight in his capital city of kinasa in order for American audiences to watch the fight

Live in prime time the bout began in the early morning hours before the sun dawned on Africa in what was dubbed The Rumble in the Jungle Ali won in an 8 Round knockout to regain the heavyweight title that had been stripped from him s years prior it was a risky but effective

Plan Ali’s win showed how awesome he was at boxing he was super skilled smart and never gave up the fighter outside the ring political stances and convictions Muhammad Ali was an amazing boxer but he also made a big difference beyond the ring Ali was a big deal in the 60s and’

70s he had strong opinions about politics and was involved in the Civil Rights and anti-war movements some people didn’t always agree with him but he made a name for himself in 1964 Ali became a Muslim and changed his name this was just the beginning of his many actions showing his dedication to racial

And religious matters Ali joined the Nation of Islam a group that supported black empowerment and self-reliance he spoke up for the rights of African-Americans being friends with people like Malcolm X and Elijah Muhammad made him even more famous as a social activist Ali’s decision to convert went beyond just a personal

Religious Choice it was a bold political statement a way of saying no to the unfair racism that existed in American society Ali really didn’t like the Vietnam War and made a big fuss about it in 1966 when things were getting intense Ali decided he didn’t want to fight

Anymore he said his religion didn’t allow it his famous quote I don’t have any problem with those Vietcong guys really struck a chord with the increasing number of people who were against the war in the United States in 1967 Ali said no to joining the US Army

Which got him in trouble and he was found guilty of avoiding the draft as a result he couldn’t box for 3 and 1/2 years and lost all his titles while he couldn’t box Ali took the opportunity to visit colleges and public forums where he shared his thoughts on racial

Injustice war and religious freedom his stubborn position had serious consequences for him both in his career and his wallet but it also turned him into a symbol of defiance and honesty Ali’s actions were super inspiring to a lot of people especially in the African-American community and those who

Were against the Vietnam War he proved that athletes aren’t just entertainers but can also have a big impact on society and politics Ali’s conviction was later overturned by the US Supreme Court in 1971 which was a big win both legally and morally he made a big

Comeback in boxing but the time he spent fighting legal battles and protesting the war really affected his career but alli’s actions at that time made him a true champion for The Underdogs and a voice for those who couldn’t speak up during his 43-month forced Exile from

The Ring Ali took to the stage in the title role of the musical Buck White the production opened inside New York’s George Abbott theater on December 2nd 1969 but Ali’s stage career would be a brief one Buck White closed four nights later after just seven per performances

In spite of the limited run Ali who played a militant black lecturer received decent reviews he sings with a pleasant slightly impersonal voice acts without embarrassment and moves with innate dignity wrote A New York Times reviewer he does himself proud Ali was really into politics and he didn’t just

Stick to the United States he traveled all over the world as a peace and human rights Ambassador meeting with leaders and spreading the message of understanding and cultural exchange he traveled to places like Iraq and North Korea sometimes to help bring back American hostages it showed how much he

Cared about helping people even as he fought Parkinson’s disease Ali stayed dedicated to social and political causes he really cared about Parkinson’s research and spent a lot of time helping others he was there at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games lighting The Cauldron during the opening ceremony it was a

Really cool moment that showed how important it is to never give up and come together as one in 2005 Ali got a really cool award called the presidential medal of freedom it’s like the highest honor you can get in the United States he’s one of the greatest

Of all times I said you all are wrong this man is nothing return to the ring comebacks and challenges in 1970 Muhammad Ali made a big comeback to boxing it was the start of an exciting new chapter in his career with lots of amazing comebacks and tough challenges

This period was a real Testament to Ali’s never give up attitude and really proved that he’s one of the all-time boxing greats Ali made his comeback in October 1970 against Jerry Quarry after being away for 3 and 1/2 years it was quite a long break people had doubts

About his form and fitness but Ally proved them wrong by winning the fight in a convincing way he showed that he still had the Speed skill and Charisma that made him a champion wow this win wasn’t just a comeback it was like a superhero defeating all the challenges

Thrown at him in March 1971 W Ali went up against Joe Frasier in a fight that everyone called the fight of the century it was a big deal the match was going to be a real Banger both Fighters were unbeaten and fighting for the heavyweight title it was going to go

Down in boxing history the fight at Madison Square Garden was totally awesome Frasier and Ali had an intense fight for 15 rounds and in the end Frasier came out on top giving Ali his first loss as a pro the fight was a real Showdown capturing the fierce competition between the two fighters wow

Ali really bounced back after that loss it was pretty impressive after winning a bunch of matches against tough opponents he was all set for a rematch with frasure in 1974 Ali won the fight and then went on to have another famous match against George Foreman in 1974 Ali

Took on the seemingly unbeatable George Foreman a powerful puncher who had crushed Frasier and was expected to beat Ali but Ali had a clever Plan called the Rope ad doe he leaned against the ropes and let Foreman wear himself out with useless punches in the eighth round a

Tired Foreman got knocked down by Ali’s quick counterattacks and Ali became the heavyweight champion again in a surprising upset Ali’s wi showed how smart and strong he was Ali’s later fights were really something porn water on his smoking this might shock an amaz you but I will reti Jo Frasier take his

Third match with Frasier in the Thrilla in Manila in 1975 for example it was a real test of Ali’s determination and ability to overcome tough challenges man The Thrilla in Manila was one intense fight both Fighters took a beating no doubt about it Ali was declared the winner when Fraser’s Corner decided to

End the fight in the 14th round Ali came out on top this match is considered one of the best in boxing history and a great example of Ali’s unbeatable determination but all those later fights really wore Ali down his style used to be all about Speed and Agility but now

It’s more about staying put enduring hits and taking it all in one reason for this change was because he’s getting older and has been working for a really long time but Ally didn’t give up he kept on fighting and defended his title many more times in 1978 allly went up

Against Leon Spinx who had just seven professional fights and was an Olympic gold medalist guess what Spinx pulled off a huge surprise and beat Ali but don’t worry Ali got his revenge and became the first three-time heavyweight champion later that year wow allly really nailed it with this Victory

Although it seemed like his best years were already in the rearview mirror allly had his last fights in 1980 against Larry Holmes and in 1981 against Trevor berbick they were the last ones he had before retiring Ali got beat up pretty bad by Holmes who used to be his

Sparring partner the fight against berbick was his final one but unfortunately he didn’t come out on top and that’s it Ali called it quits after this big fight wrapping up a career that lasted a whopping two decades Legacy and influence Beyond boxing Muhammad Ali was more than just a boxer his impact goes
