Born January 17, 1942, Muhammad Ali became a three-time Lineal World Heavyweight Champion boxer.  He was known for taunting his rivals with poems and rhymes that he wrote, stating what he would do to them in the ring.  Cassius Clay changed his name to Muhammad Ali after converting to Sunni Islam.  Calling himself  “The Greatest”, he beat Sonny Liston with a knockout punch in the first round of a rematch fight for The Heavyweight Title of the world.  Although he presently suffers from Parkinson’s Syndrome, he travels the world helping the poor and needy.
