Muhammad Ali - name commonly transcribed in French as Mohamed Ali or Mohammed Ali - born January 17, 1942 in Louisville, Kentucky, died 3 June 2016 in Scottsdale, Arizona, was an American boxer in the heavyweight category. He is one the best boxers of all time. Born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr., he changes his name to Muhammad Ali at the age of 22 years after his conversion to Islam in 1965.
He won Olympic gold in the light heavyweight category at the age of 18 in the 1960 Rome Olympic Games. In 1967, three years after winning the World Championship of the heavyweights against Sonny Liston, he is criticized for his refusal to be drafted into the army in protest against the Viet Nam war saying: ‘No Vietcong has ever called me a nigger’. Mohamed Ali is arrested and convicted of fraud. He is not imprisoned, but stripped of his world title and his boxing license. He stops fighting for almost four years, until his appeal is finally received by the U.S. supreme court.
Dubbed The Greatest, Muhammad Ali becomes the first three-time heavyweight world champion. He participates in several historic boxing matches. Among these, three against rival Joe Frazier are considered among the biggest fights in boxing history, as well as his fight against George Foreman in Kinshasa, which he wins by knockout in the 8th round in front of 100,000 spectators, on October 30, 1974.
