Biography

Muhammad Ali (born as Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr. in Louisville, Kentucky, U.S.) is a former American professional boxer who was several times world champion heavyweight. Many experts expect that Ali is still all-time leading boxes. He defended the heavyweight title a total of 19 times.

His international breakthrough came when he won the light heavyweight in the Summer Olympics 1960 and turned professional the same year. In 1964 he won the world title at heavyweight by defeating Sonny Liston. He later converted to Islam in 1965 and changed his name from Cassius Marcellus Clay, who he thought was a slave name, to what we today know as Muhammad Ali. This meant that he refused military service, and lost his title in 1967. Ali was convicted in court 20 June 1967, but appealed, and the Supreme Court revoked the judgment 28 June 1971.
