Known as “The Greatest” and “King of the World, the man who once described himself in the ring as “floating like a butterfly and stinging like a bee.”
Cleary, there’s only one man we could be talking about, the one and only- Muhammad Ali.
Many greats have come and gone since Ali took off his boxing gloves for good.
But there will only be one Ali.
That’s just facts, B.
Some might argue that Ali was the man that made sports entertaining. Many would argue that he was that man who the made athletes stars, idols and ultimately-millionaires.
Oh, and let us not forget, the great role he played in turning sports photojournalists into major players in the industry-the original hype men.
Muhammad Ali’s career included some of the biggest bouts in boxing history and it was in the ring that he reigned supreme.
This legend of more than just the boxing world lasted in the ring for just over 20 years! That’s a killer career of incredible strength, discipline and talent spanning over decades! There is no arguing that this guy one ws of the greatest.
Upon retiring in 1981, Ali posted a record of 56 wins, five losses, and 37 knockouts.
