Description:

Muhammad Ali (born January 17th, 1942, as Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr.) is an American boxer. He was one of the world”s greatest heavyweight boxers, as well as one of the worlds most famous individuals, renowned the world over for his boxing and political activism. Ali is also considered to be a major influence on rap music for his witty, boastfully rhyming speaking style. He is also considered by many to be one of the greatest sports athletes of the 20th century. Liston was the 7 to 1 on favorite going into the fight; many still doubted the 22-year-old Clay”s abilities. The champion had been preparing for a short fight in which he would punish the brazen young Clay but, despite at one stage complaining of blurred vision, the challenger dazzled Liston with a combination of speed and high-powered punching. Sitting on the stool, his face swollen, Liston made no move to come out and fight for the seventh round. Clay was heavyweight champion of the world.
