His personality took him way beyond mere boxer status, to superstar.

He embraced Islam, refused to fight in the Vietnam War for America, and is still proud and strong today despite fighting the greatest battle of his life, to beat Parkinson's Disease.

Ali made his seven-year stand against the war with a dignity and courage which elevated him far beyond his shortcomings. The man, born as Cassius Clay, truly has had a remarkable life.
