Happy Birthday to, arguably, the greatest boxer to have lived, Muhammad Ali.

Ali turns 72 today and it doesn’t really need to be said what he contributed to the boxing community over the years…but here goes anyway:

Ali’s charisma, ability and flat-out refusal to be beaten leave him, in the eyes of the majority, right at the top of the list of Heavyweight Boxers of All Time.

Born under the name ‘Cassius Clay Jr.’, changed later to reflect his Muslim beliefs, won 56 of his 61 heavyweight bouts, 37 by knock out. He also won a Gold medal at the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome.

Happy Birthday, Muhammad Ali!
