About the Item On offer here is collectors card and photo display of Muhammad Ali that has been framed. The huge item is double mounted and framed with cards and photographs from Ali's career with engraved plaques. Born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr. (January 17, 1942 June 3, 2016) was an American professional boxer, generally considered the greatest heavyweight in the history of the sport. Early in his career, Ali was known for being a controversial and polarizing figure both inside and outside the boxing ring.
He was one of the most recognized sports figures of the past 100 years, crowned "Sportsman of the Century" by Sports Illustrated and "Sports Personality of the Century" by the BBC. Ali, originally known as Cassius Clay, began training at 12 years old and at the age of 22 won the world heavyweight championship in 1964 from Sonny Liston in a stunning upset. Shortly after that bout, Ali joined the Nation of Islam and changed his name.
He converted to Sunni Islam in 1975, and 30 years later began adhering to Sufism. In 1967, three years after winning the heavyweight title, Ali refused to be conscripted into the U. Military, citing his religious beliefs and opposition to American involvement in the Vietnam War.
He was eventually arrested and found guilty on draft evasion charges and stripped of his boxing title. He did not fight again for nearly four yearslosing a time of peak performance in an athlete's career. Ali's appeal worked its way up to the U.Supreme Court where, in 1971, his conviction was overturned. Ali's actions as a conscientious objector to the war made him an icon for the larger counterculture generation. Ali remains the only three-time lineal world heavyweight champion; he won the title in 1964, 1974, and 1978. Between February 25, 1964 and September 19, 1964 Muhammad Ali reigned as the undisputed heavyweight boxing champion.
Nicknamed "The Greatest", Ali was involved in several historic boxing matches. Notable among these were the first Liston fight, three with rival Joe Frazier, and "The Rumble in the Jungle" with George Foreman, in which he regained titles he had been stripped of seven years earlier.
