{February 14, 2011}   Muhammad Ali – I Am the Greatest

Born Cassius Marcellus Clay in 1942, his career began to take off in 1960 when he won an Olympic gold medal in Rome and turned professional later that year, making his debut against Tunney Husaker. Four years later, he converted to Islam and changed his name to Muhammad Ali and it was the same year he beat Sonny Liston in six rounds to win the heavyweight title for the first time, after which he famously stated, “I am the greatest”.
