Muhammad Ali, formerly known as Cassius Clay and known to the world as “The People’s Champ,” first came to prominence in 1960 after winning a Gold medal for the U.S.A. Boxing Team at the Olympics in Rome. He later became the Boxing Heavyweight Champion of the World, a strong supporter of civil rights in the U.S. during the 1960s, and a minister of Islam who would take on the U.S. government by refusing to be drafted into the Vietnam War and facing a boxing ban that could have marked the end of his career.
