Muhammad Ali was born in Louisville, Kentucky. 17th January 1942. Ali said he was “The Greatest” and to most he was. He was the first man in history to win the Heavyweight championship 3 times. In 1964 he demolished Liston to become Heavyweight champion and in the return fight, knocked out Liston in the first round. He was stripped of the title in 1967 for refusing to join the U.S Army. Following the first defeat of his career to Joe Frazier he regained his title with an incredible win over Foreman in Zaire. He defended his title 10 times before losing it to Leon Spinks whom he outpointed in the return match winning the title for the historic third time. It was arguably the greatest heavyweight boxing career of all time
