Muhammad Ali, 'The Greatest of all Time, the silver-tongued boxer and civil rights champion died on June 3, 2016. He had spent his last few days in a Phoenix-area hospital with respiratory complications. Muhammad Ali was born as Cassius Marcellus Clay, on 17 January 1942. His career graph shows 61 fights over a professional career lasting 21 years with 56 wins, including 37 knockouts, 1 Light-heavyweight Olympic gold medal (Rome Olympic, 1960) and 3 times crowned World Heavyweight Champion, 31 straight wins before being beaten by Joe Frazier. Muhammad Ali means a lot to so many people all over the world. He will be remembered as a man who spoke his mind and never dared to go out of his way to be a kind, benevolent individual that really changed the world. Once Jesse Jackson, an American civil rights campaigner said, Ali had been willing to sacrifice the crown and money for his principles when he refused to serve in the Vietnam War. He refused to join U.S army against Vietnam, because he said, "My enemy is the white people, not the Vietcong or Chinese or Japanese. They oppose me when I want freedom, they oppose me when I want justice and equality." In protest against American racism, he threw his Olympic gold medal into a river.
