Muhammad Ali (born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr.) Wiki Biography

Born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. on 17 January 1942, in Louisville, Kentucky USA, but known worldwide under his preferred name of Muhammad Ali, he was one of the outstanding sports personalities of the 2oth century. Not only did he win the World Heavyweight Boxing Championship three times, but also used his fame and popularity in the ring to become a prominent activist for racial equality in the USA. Muhammad Ali passed away on 3 June 2016 from a respiratory disease, having suffered from Parkinson’s Disease for more than 30 years.

So just how rich was Muhammad Ali? Sources have estimated that Ali’s net worth amounted to more than $50 million, the vast majority of his wealth earned from his outstanding heavyweight boxing career.

Ali was raised in a working=class family. His mother, Odessa O’Grady Clay, was a housekeeper and his father, Cassius Marcellus Clay, Sr., worked as a painter of billboards. Ali became interested in boxing at the age of twelve when his bike was stolen and he complained about this incident to a police officer, boxing coach Joe Martin. He advised the boy to learn to  fight, and began to train him, very successfully as it turned out, as Ali  subsequently won six state titles, and two national Golden Gloves titles, the supreme achievement for a US amateur boxer. To crown his amateur career, Ali won the light-heavyweight division at the 1960 Rome Olympic Games.

Ali turned professional immediately after the Olympics, and in the next three years won all 19 of his fights, becoming the highest contender to fight then champion Sonny Liston for the world heavyweight title. It was about this time that Ali earned one of his nicknames, ‘The Louisville Lip’, as he taunted Liston unmercifully before the fight. Ali won the fight when Liston retired after six rounds, at which point Ali declared that ‘I must be the greatest’, earning another nickname of ‘The Greatest’. At that time he was the youngest heavyweight champion ever, at 22 years of age.

Over the next 18 years before final retirement in 1981, Ali had another 40 fights,reclaiming the world title twice, whilst losing only five times. Several were outstanding: a fight against then champion George Foreman in 1974 was called ‘The Rumble in the Jungle’, Ali winning by a knockout over the previously undefeated Foreman. Three against Joe Frazier – one in 1975 dubbed ‘The Thriller in Manila’ – were all memorable, but Ali is most remembered for his speed in the ring, including his speed of punch – assessed as one of the fastest ever, at any weight – as well as his sometimes controversial personality, particularly his ability to deliver monologues which rivalled his physical speed. Certainly his career saw his net worth rise dramatically as he became easily the biggest box office attraction in the boxing world.

Two controversies in particular were his conversion to Islam, at which point he also changed his name to Mohammad Ali, claiming that his birth name was that of a 19th century slave anyway (not true, and actually his father was a prominent activist for racial equality). Then his objection to serving in the US Forces during the war in Vietnam saw him jailed and stripped of his world boxing champion status in 1967; the former decision was overturned some years later.

Regardless, Ali remained largely popular with boxing fans especially, but also perhaps in sympathy, as in 1982 doctors diagnosed Ali with Parkinson’s disease.  In 1996 Muhammad Ali was invited to light the Olympic flame at the Atlanta Olympic Games. During these Olympic Games, he was given a replacement Olympic gold medal for the first one which the champion allegedly threw into the Ohio River in protest at racial problems shortly after he won it, but actually had probably simply lost. Ali is considered by sporting authorities to be one of the legendary sportsmen of the twentieth century.

In his personal life, Muhammad was married four times . In 1964 he married waitress Sonji Roi, but they divorced in 1966. A year later he married Belinda Boyd; after ten years of marriage and having four children they divorced. In 1977 Ali married actress and model Veronica Porsche, and they had two children but divorced in 1986. The same year he married Yolanda, and they adopted a son together.  Muhammad also had two children out of wedlock.

Muhammad Ali passed away in Phoenix Arizona, and was buried in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. Many believe that there will never be another boxer as able and charismatic as ‘The Greatest’.

1Rope-a-dope strategy (absorbing round after round of punishing blows from the opponent only to come back stronger after the opponent exhausted themselves)
2Stinging taunts of opponents which frequently rhymed.
3Extraordinary speed and agility in addition to devastatingly powerful blows
4Boastful behaviour
5The Ali Shuffle
6Predicting the round in which his opponents would fall, sometimes even down to the minute
7Trademark phrase: "Floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee"
1I done wrestled with an alligator, I done tussled with a whale; Handcuffed lightning, thrown thunder in jail; Only last week, I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalized a brick; I'm so mean I make medicine sick.
2I'm so fast that last night I turned off the light switch in my hotel room and got into bed before the room was dark.
3[1999, on being crowned Sports Personality of the Century by the BBC] I'd like to thank the British people for giving me this great welcome and thank you for this award. I had a good time boxing. I enjoyed it - and I may come back.
4Cassius Clay is a slave name. I didn't choose it, and I didn't want it. I am Muhammad Ali, a free name, and I insist people using it when speaking to me and of me.
5[1999, on being crowned Sports Personality of the Century by the BBC] Ever since I first came here in 1963 to fight Henry Cooper, I have loved the people of England. They have always been extremely warm and welcoming to me, which is why I am especially honored to accept the BBC's Sports Personality of the Century. I give thanks to God and to all the people in the UK who have supported me over the years.
6[2004, asked what he thought when he looked back on the boxer he was] Sometimes, I feel a little sad because I can see how some things I said could upset some people. But I did not deliberately try to hurt anyone. The hype was part of my job, like skipping rope
7My conscience won't let me go shoot my brother, or some darker people, some poor hungry people in the mud, for big powerful America. And shoot them for what? They never called me nigger. They never lynched me. They didn't put no dogs on me.
8[after defeating Sonny Liston] I'm king of the world! I'm pretty! I'm a bad man! I shook up the world! I shook up the world! I shook up the world!
9[observation, 1984] What I suffered physically was worth what I've accomplished in life. A man who is not courageous enough to take risks will never accomplish anything in life.
10[after the Supreme Court overturned his conviction for draft evasion] I've done my celebrating already. I said a prayer to Allah.
11The man who views the world at fifty the same way as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.
12I ain't got nothing against them Vietcong.
13He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
14[on Elvis Presley] Elvis was my close personal friend. He came to my Deer Lake training camp about two years before he died. He told us he didn't want nobody to bother us. He wanted peace and quiet and I gave him a cabin in my camp and nobody even knew it. When the cameras started watching me train, he was up on the hill sleeping in the cabin. Elvis had a robe made for me. I don't admire nobody but Elvis Presley. He was the sweetest, most humble and nicest man you'd ever meet.
15My toughest fight was my first wife.
16I'm gonna float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, George [George Foreman] can't hit what his eyes can't see, now you see me, now you don't, he thinks he will but I know he won't.
17I'm soooooooooooooooooo pretty!!!
18[on challenger Henry Cooper] If he talks some jive, I'll knock him out in round five.
19Sonny Liston is too ugly to be world heavyweight champion!.
20I won a gold medal representing the USA at the Olympic Games in 1960, but when I came home, I still got treated like a nigger. There were restaurants I couldn't get served in. Some people kept calling me "boy".
21[after being rejected by the United States Army during the Vietnam War because he failed the "intelligence" test] I never said I was the smartest, I said I was the greatest.
22You can't hit what you can't see; I float like a butterfly and sting like a bee!
23Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.
24It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.
25When you're as great as I am, it's hard to be humble.
26At home I am a nice guy - but I don't want the world to know. Humble people, I've found, don't get very far.
27I am an astronaut of boxing. Joe Louis and Jack Dempsey were just jet pilots. I'm in a world of my own.
28Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.
1Having the distinction of being one of the World's most famous celebrity's of all time. Many fans would request getting punched by Ali rather than a picture or autograph. Boasting that they got hit by the Greatest!.
2He first decided to take boxing lessons when neighborhood bullies stole his bike and he wanted to get back at them.
3Ali is the first heavyweight champion in the history of boxing to lose his title to a novice (who had only seven professional fights). This occurred when Ali lost to Leon Spinks on February 15, 1978.
4He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Live Theatre at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on January 11, 2002. At Ali insistence, the star was installed at the facade of the Kodak Theatre, home of the Academy Awards.
5Ali was arguably actually a four-time World Heavyweight Champion. In 1965, after signing to fight dethroned champion 'Sonny Liston' for a rematch, a fight that was not sanctioned in many areas, Ali was stripped by The World Boxing Association of their recognition of him as Heavyweight Champion. The WBA sanctioned an elimination match between contenders Ernie Terrell and Eddie Machen to determine who the Heavyweight Champion would be. Terrell won by a 15-round decision and was the WBA champion for two years. Most sanctioning bodies and the general public still recognized Ali as the true champion. He regained the WBA Heavyweight Championship and unified the Heavyweight Championship by winning a 15-round decision over Terrell in 1967, only to be stripped of the title again several months later because of his refusal to register the military draft. He later won the title on two more occasions from George Foreman and Leon Spinks, reversing a previous loss to Spinks.
6The only fighter to win a decision over Joe Frazier (their second fight).
7The only fighter to score a KO of George Foreman and Oscar Bonnavena.
8Was photographed with American actor David J. Silver during his visit to Arizona. He attended a lavish dinner at the Palms Hotel in Paradise Valley for his famed 2004 Fight Night Celebrity charity at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix.
9Father-in-law of Curtis Conway.
10Wanted the role of Bilal in The Message (1976) but the film's director nixed the idea.
11Was featured in a "Pizza Hut" boxing commercial alongside David Bortolucci and Ali's real-life trainer Angelo Dundee, which was meant to air during the 1998 Super Bowl but was pulled at the very last moment for being too violent. It was estimated that the entire campaign cost Pizza Hut tens of millions of dollars.
12Met The Beatles while training to fight Sonny Liston, and posed for photos with them in a boxing ring. Declared afterward that they were the greatest, but he was "still the prettiest".
13His maternal grandmother's paternal grandfather was of Anglo-Saxon descent, and he is related to--among other notables--US Presidents William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, Zachary Taylor and Benjamin Harrison VI, Confedrate General Robert E. Lee, General George C. Marshall' and General George S. Patton. He is also related to actors Lee Marvin, Glenn Close, Laura Dern and Hilary Duff, journalist Katie Couric and cyclist Lance Armstrong.
14Trained by Joe Martin (1953-1959) as an amateur, Archie Moore (1960-1961) and Angelo Dundee (1961-1980).
15Received the Otto Yamaoka peace medal for his "life-long engagement in the American civil rights movement and the global cultural emancipation of blacks, as well as his work as a UN Goodwill ambassador". [December 2005]
16First man to knock down Sonny Liston and George Foreman.
17When Ali stopped Sonny Liston for the World Heavyweight Title, Liston had not lost a fight in over 10 years.
18In 62 pro boxing matches, Ali was only stopped once; by Larry Holmes on a technical knockout. Ali was never counted out, but was unable to come out for round 11 in their title fight.
19As an amateur, Ali was only knocked-out once in over 110 fights, by Kent Green on a third round technical knockout. Green went on to a 14-2 pro boxing record.
20Awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President George W. Bush on November 9, 2005. Other recipients were Frank Robinson, General Richard Myers, Paul Rusesabagina, Carol Burnett, Andy Griffith, Aretha Franklin, Vint Cerf and his Internet co-developer Robert Kahn, Jack Nicklaus, Alan Greenspan and former congressman Sonny Montgomery.
21Voted sports personality of the Century in England
22Inactive for three and a half years while fighting his draft evasion case in court.
23From 1963 to 1966, he successfully defended the heavyweight title nine times.
24Had an amateur boxing record of 127 wins and only five defeats.
25His maternal great-grandfather was Abe Grady, a native of Ireland
26Has portrayed himself in four different motion pictures.
27Inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1990 and the Sport in Society Hall of Fame in 1994.
28He is referenced in the song "Powder Blue" by Ween and "Noise Epic" by The Verve. He also inspired the title of a rare song by The Verve recorded from the sessions for their album "Forth".
29Recorded an album for Epic Records in 1964 titled "I Am the Greatest". Sam Cooke produced one of the songs from the LP, "The Gang's All Here". A single, his version of "Stand By Me" was released just after his first Liston fight, in 1964, and received some airplay.
30Legend has it that Ali threw his 1960 Olympic gold medal into the river, when in reality he just simply lost it at some point in time.
31Inducted into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame in 1983 (charter member) and the World Boxing Hall of Fame in 1986.
32Married second wife Khalilah 'Belinda' Ali when she was age 17.
33Contrary to popular belief, he was stripped of his boxing license by the State of New York and his title by the World Boxing Association when he converted to Islam. However, the World Boxing Council recognized him as champ throughout his battle with the Government over his refusal to be inducted into the United States Army.
34In 1962, Ali signed for Selective Service, but he failed the mental aptitude test, and was classified 1-Y (unfit for service). But when the United States armed forces required more soldiers for the Vietnam War, the pass-percentage marks for the tests were dropped to 15, meaning that Ali (and thousands of other men) was re-classified 1-A, now fit for service.
35In June 1967, Ali was convicted of violating the Selective Service Act (knowingly and willfully refusing to report for and submit to induction into the armed forces), and was sentenced to five years in prison and fined $100,000. On appeal, Ali claimed he was denied due process because the ratio of blacks on draft boards did not reflect their ratio in the population. But the three member Presidential Draft Board, formed by President Lyndon Johnson to prevent such scenarios (and included a black member) ruled his objection was invalid, and that he was not entitled to conscientious objector status as a minister of the Islamic religion (what he stated as his profession). Morever, in an April 1966 letter to his local draft board, Ali protested that two years of military service would cause him serious financial loss in being unable to pursue his livelihood as a boxer, NOT as a minister.
36In order to pay his legal fees (since he was barred from boxing), Ali hit the college lecture circuit and even starred in the Broadway musical "Buck White".
37Children: Daughters Rasheeda and Jamilla (twins) and Maryum (by Belinda Boyd); Miya, Khalilah, Hana Ali and Laila Ali (by Verónica Porche Ali). Sons Muhammed, Jr. (by Boyd); Asaad (adopted with Yolonda Williams).
38Has a record of 56-5 with 37 KOs.
39His bout with massive underdog Chuck Wepner inspired Sylvester Stallone to create Rocky Balboa, while the character Apollo Creed (played by Carl Weathers) was based on Ali himself.
40Took in interest in boxing when his bike was stolen by local hoods.
41Lit the torch at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia.
42Suffers from Parkinson's Syndrome, caused by the numerous blows to the head during his boxing career.
43Younger brother of Rahman Ali.
44Son of Odessa Clay
45Ali learned early from the outrageous bad-guy wrestler, Gorgeous George, that it could pay to be hated. Ali said "I saw fifteen thousand people coming to see this man get beat, and his talking did it. I said, this is a goo-o-o-d idea!" Then Ali refined that talking concept to what has been referred to as the Louisville Lip.
46Light heavyweight boxing gold medalist, 1960 Olympics. World heavyweight boxing champion, 1964-1967, 1974-1978, 1978-1979.
