          He is still one of the most recognizable men on earth. And decades after he burst upon the scene as a gold medal winner at the 1960 Olympics in Rome, Italy, Muhammad Ali remains ainagical figure, known and loved throughout the world.
          Ali brought new speed and grace to his sport, and his charm and wit changed forever what we expect a champion to be. His accomplishments in the ring were the stuff of legend : two fights with Sonny Liston, where he proclaimed himself "The Greatest" and proved he was three ambitious wars with Joe Frazier; the stunning victory over George Foreman in Zaire; and dethroning Leon Spinks to become heavyweight champion for the third time. But there was always far more to Muhammad Ali than what took place in a boxing ring.
          His early embrace of the Nation of Islam and his insistence on being called Muhammad Ali instead of his "slave name," Cassius Clay, introduced a new era in black pride. His refusal to be inducted into the United States army anticipated the growing antiwar movement of the 1960s. And his willingness to stage his fights in different countries such as Kinshasa, Zaire; Manila, Philippines; and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; signaled a shift away from super power dominances toward a growing awareness of the importance of the third world.
          Today, Ali is a deeply religious man who causes feeling of love and respect wherever he travels.
