Ali wins the title

There will be many more great champions in boxing but there is only one man known as “The Greatest.” Born as Cassius Clay but self-made into arguably the greatest heavyweight of all times Muhammad Ali, the ring will never know another like him. It was February 25, 1964, 49 years ago today, that young Cassius Clay overcame long odds to usher in his own era by defeating the incumbent champion Charles “Sonny” Liston using a long jab and footwork the world had never seen a big man use.


The champ is here!!!
