Born in Louisville, Kentucky, U.S, Muhammad Ali is a professional boxer, philanthropist, and social activist. Ali took up boxing when he was 12 yo and began his professional career after taking the gold in the 1960 Olympic Games' 175-pound division. Ali was the first fighter to win the world heavyweight championship on three separate occasions. Ali completed his boxing career with 56 wins and 5 losses with 37 knockouts.
In addition to his dominance in the boxing ring, Ali has been a strong voice of dissent during the 1960s with his message of Black pride and Black resistance to white domination and his refusal to join the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War.
