Muhammad Ali (American boxer) Wiki, Height, Weight, Bio, Family, Education, Died, Age & More

Muhammad Ali, a legendary American professional boxer and social activist, was born on January 17, 1942, in Louisville, Kentucky, and passed away on June 3, 2016, in Scottsdale, Arizona. He is renowned for being the first boxer to capture the world heavyweight championship three times, defending his title 19 times, and demonstrating exceptional skill in the sport.

Growing up in the segregated South of the United States, Ali’s early experiences were shaped by his family background. His father, Cassius Marcellus Clay, Sr., worked as a billboard and sign painter, and his mother, Odessa Grady Clay, was a domestic helper. These circumstances played a significant role in the early life of a man who would later emerge as a symbol of resilience and a champion for social change.

Ali’s boxing journey began at the age of 12 under the guidance of Joe Martin, a Louisville policeman. His natural talent and relentless commitment rapidly advanced him through the amateur boxing ranks. A defining moment in his early career was his victory in the light-heavyweight division at the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome, where he won a gold medal. This achievement set the stage for his professional boxing career, supported by the Louisville Sponsoring Group, a consortium of 11 affluent white businessmen. Ali’s transition from Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali signified a major transformation in his personal identity and coincided with his increasing engagement in social and political activism. His influence extends far beyond his athletic achievements, as he is celebrated for his significant contributions to various social causes and his lasting impact on the sport of boxing and beyond.
