Muhammad Ali, the fleet-footed, trash-talking, butterfly-floating, bee-stinging heavyweight boxing champion of the world, died Friday at a hospital in Arizona. Provocative, polarizing, and passionate, Ali rose to the upper strata of the boxing world amid the turbulence of the 1960s, claiming the heavyweight title in 1964 in a stunning upset against Sonny Liston. But his conscientious refusal to serve in the Vietnam War led to his criminal conviction on draft-evasion charges and to his title being stripped, transforming him into a social-justice icon and anti-war hero. Ali returned to boxing in 1970, and the U. S. Supreme Court unanimously reversed his conviction the following year. He reclaimed the title in 1974 against Big George Foreman in the legendary “Rumble in the Jungle” in Zaire and faced Smokin’ Joe Frazier in the “Thrilla in Manila” in 1975, two of the most epic bouts in modern boxing. As age and illness steadily took their toll, Ali retired for the final time in 1981. Adept at both social activism and athleticism, Ali set a precedent for future generations of athletes to wade into the social and political issues of the day. Muhammad Ali was born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr. , a name he later renounced as his “slave name” after his conversion to Islam, on January 17, 1942, in Louisville, Kentucky. While hunting for a beloved stolen bicycle in 1954, the 12-year-old Clay crossed paths with Joe Martin, a black officer in the Louisville Police Department. Clay told Martin he wanted to pummel the thief when he found him. “You better learn to fight before you start fighting,” Martin replied. Martin filled out the police report, then invited Clay to join him at the Columbia Gym he ran, Louisville’s only integrated boxing gym at the time, for lessons on weeknights. Under Martin’s tutelage, Clay’s frantic punches evolved into bone-jarring jabs and tooth-rattling hooks. He won his first amateur bout later that year against a white boxer, Ronnie O’Keefe, in a split decision broadcast on Kentucky television. Clay eventually racked up six Kentucky Golden Glove titles and two national ones in his amateur career. Clay went professional two months later. Source: www.theatlantic.com
