He would go on to become the first and only three-time (in succession) World Heavyweight Champion. Nicknamed “The Greatest,” Ali was as well known for his unique boxing style, consisting of the Ali Shuffle and the rope-a-dope, as he was for the catchphrase “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.” He was an uncompromising athlete who brought beauty and grace to a very rough sport and became one of the world’s most famous cultural icons. Read Who Was Muhammad Ali? and discover “The Greatest.”

Excerpt from Muhammad Ali: His Life and Services to His Country During the sessions of the Special Congress this year at Bombay in the joint deliberations of the Subjects Committee of the Indian National Congress and the Council of the All India Muslim League. But amongst them all the name of Mohamed Ali stands out as the most strenuous as it was also one of the most sincere. Much has been said and more hinted about his pan-islamic tendencies; but those who have known Mohamed Ali only by his published utterances and his political work remain unconvinced that one of the strongest advocates of Indian Unity and a strong upholder of the Imperial Connection deserved the fate to which he has been condemned. If there be anything deserving of condemnation in the actions of such men the only safe course is to publish the evidence against them. In the absence of such publication the Indian public, cognisant of the ways of the Police and aware of the transparency of Mohamed Ali's motives, remains sceptical towards official assertion.

One of the most recognisable, respected and inspirational men on earth, Muhammad Ali is the world's most famous boxing hero. Ali brought unprecedented speed and grace to the sport, and his charm and wit changed forever what the world expects of a champion athlete. In the words of over two hundred of Ali's family members, associates, opponents, friends and enemies, this comprehensive and honest portrait relates his legendary sporting accomplishments, as well as the high drama of life outside the boxing ring. From Olympic gold in Rome, to stunning victory over George Foreman in Zaire, every historic victory and defeat of Ali's career is covered. His controversial embrace of the Nation of Islam - with the renunciation of his 'slave name', Cassius Clay - and the historic refusal to be inducted into the US Army makes for compelling reading. Ali became America's first national conscientious objector, and with a willingness to stage his fights in Third World locales, he continued his advocacy for people in need which was honoured in 2000 when he became a United Nations Messenger of Peace. Charismatic, dedicated and a skilful self-publicist, Ali is the living embodiment of the American Dream. This is the biography to match his achievements.

This biography will have your readers on the edge of their seats. Muhammad Ali was a triple threat: heavyweight boxing champion, civil rights activist, and international sports icon. One of the most influential figures of the twentieth century, Ali dominated professional boxing for more than a decade in the 1960s and 1970s. Brash and outspoken, he proclaimed "I am the greatest." He backed it up. A true rebel, he refused to serve in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War, saying it violated his religious beliefs. And after retiring from boxing, Ali had one more fight: diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1984, he raised awareness of and funds for treatment and research for over 30 years. When he died in 2016, the world lost one of its most treasured and rebellious sports figures.

In the 1950s, a young African American boy named Cassius Clay was told he couldn't enter restaurants, swim in pools, or even have a drink of water--all because of his skin color. A burning anger grew in the heart of the boy and then in the soul of the young man who would come to be known as Muhammad Ali. Ali would find his release and his future in the sport of boxing. In turn, the fame boxing brought him allowed him to express his beliefs to the world. And Ali was as fearless with his voice as he was with his opponents in the ring. Though Ali was often criticized and even punished for speaking his mind, he refused to let anyone tell him who he could or could not be--uncommon bravery during this time in the United States. It was this bravery that would earn Ali worldwide respect, three heavyweight championships, and the title "The Greatest".

Muhammad Ali was not only a champion athlete, but a cultural icon. While his skill as a boxer made him famous, his strong personality and his identity as a black man in a country in the midst of the struggle for civil rights made him an enduring symbol. From his youth in segregated Louisville, Kentucky, to his victory in the 1960 Olympics, to the controversy that surrounded his conversion to Islam and refusal of the draft during the Vietnam War, Ali's life was closely linked to the major social and political struggles of the 1960s and 70s. The story of his struggles, failures, and triumphs sheds light on issues of race, class, religion, dissent, and the role of sports in American society that affected all Americans. In this lively, concise biography, Barbara L. Tischler introduces students to Ali's life in social and political context, and explores his enduring significance as a symbol of resistance. Muhammad Ali: A Many of Many Voices offers the perfect introduction to this extraordinary American and his times.

He was a man who fought like no other inside the ring, yet outside the ring he fought for peace. "The Louisville Lip" went on to become a three-time champion, beating some of boxing's greatest fighters, including Joe Frazier and George Foreman. He stunned the world when he beat Sonny Liston for the title. He stunned the world even more when he joined the Nation of Islam and changed his name to Muhammad Ali. He was stripped of his title and banned from boxing for refusing to join the military because of his religious beliefs, then returned to become one of the most famous athletes in history. Not even Parkinson's disease could stop him. A fighter, poet, civil rights leader, humanitarian, and more, Ali remains, in his own words, the king of the world.
