Muhammed Ali Fighting Spirit

Muhammad Ali the boxer was also an Olympic Gold medalist andthe first to win the linear heavyweight title three times.Muhammad Ali the star was a jive-talking showman who had reporters eating out of his hands,always wondering what hewas going to say next. Muhammad Ali the humanitarian gave cause tohis countrymen to find their place in the world.Ali grew up in Louisville Kentucky as Cassius Clay Jnr, and started boxing at an early age. Working on his fitness he’d runbeside the school bus rather than catch it, and spar under an old cedar tree in his front yard. He took up boxing so that hewould be ready if he ever caught up with the thieves who stole a treasured bicycle. But boxing became so much more tohim than just a way to get revenge or defend himself
