"Float Like a Butterfly and Sting Like a Bee!". Cassius Clay, aka Muhammad Ali was born on January 17, 1942. Sometimes controversial, always entertaining, Ali would take the world by storm by knocking out Joe Liston. Known as "The Champ", Ali made his bout predictions and backed them up. But sometimes, when the moment was right, a flash of humility would come through. Are you a boxing fan?

“I’m not the greatest; I’m the double greatest. Not only do I knock ‘em out, I pick the round. “ – Muhammad Ali Muhammad Ali (born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr. on January 17, 1942) is a retired American boxer. In 1999, Ali was crowned “Sportsman of the Century” by Sports Illustrated. He won the World Heavyweight Boxing championship three times, and won the North American Boxing Federation championship as well as an Olympic gold medal. Ali was born in Louisville, Kentucky. He was named after his father, Cassius Marcellus Clay, Sr., (who was named for the 19th century abolitionist and politician Cassius Clay). 1954 After having his bike stolen, a 12-year-old Clay promises to "whup whoever stole it." In an attempt to channel his aggression, the policeman he reported the crime to takes him under his wing and eventually directs him to boxing trainer Fred Stoner. Over the next six years, Clay would win six Kentucky Golden Gloves championships, two national Golden Gloves titles, and two AAU (Am ...

Its too early to give up! Mohammed Ali (Cassius Clay) used to start counting his sit ups when it starts paining. Giving up is nothing but running away from the challenges. Lets face and overcome; instead of giving up!!!

The pink card is where I bought my 1964 Chevy Impala 2 door hardtop for 75 bucks in 1979 from Charlies Wrecker Service in Shively,and the Auctioneer was Joe Martin the Louisville Cop that got Cassius Clay aka Muhammad Ali into boxing.I worked at Charlies at this time and Charlie McCellan is the one that told me that Joe Martin is the one that got Ali into boxing,so I had to ask Joe how he got him into boxing,and if I remember correctly,he told me that while on duty one day he got a dispatch to make a report on a kid that got his bike stolen in the west end,and it was a boy named Cassius Clay Jr.,he made a report and he said that the boy said,I wish I could find them and knew how to fight real good so I could beat them up,and that is when Joe told him to come to the Gym and he would teach him how to fight,and that is how Ali got into boxing.At the bottom of the picture of Joe Martin and Ali it says ""Joe Martin admires Cassius' diamond ring which the youngster won in the 1959 Golden Gloves"".
It's crazy Muhammad Little changed his name to Malcolm X and Cassius Clay changed his to Muhammad Ali o.O
Amusing you try to dress yourself with the imprimatur of Cassius Clay & align your method as destructive. 1 thing right!
Just spoke to a guy named Muhammad Ali so I asked him if it's ok to call him Cassius Clay? He responds who's that? Really? Come on Dude!!!
Nobody believes in you? Cool. Nobody believed in Cassius Clay either.
Wyatt Earp, Referee It was one of the greatest sporting scandals of the 19th century. And, although malfeasance and corruption in sports didn't reach their apogee until the 20th century, the 1800s had their share, too. It was the Sharkey-Fitzsimmons debacle of December 2, 1896, in which "Sailor" Tom Sharkey battled "Ruby Bob" Fitzsimmons in San Francisco - - - with former Marshall Wyatt Earp as referee. Disputed decisions, questionable stoppages of bouts, and dissatisfaction with referees have always been the bane of boxing: that's why most boxing fans prefer a good, honest knockout, instead of fights that "go the distance" and are decided by corrupt judges. One thinks, in modern times, of the dubious ending of Cassius Clay and Sonny Liston's second match in 1965, and the "phantom punch" that caused Liston to essentially surrender; or referee Richard Steele's stoppage, in the final round, of the bout between Julio Cesar Chavez and Meldrick Taylor in 1990. But the Sharkey-Fitszimmons fight was as contr ... featured in NBC s Science of Love

Wilma Glodean Rudolph (June 23, 1940 – November 12, 1994) was an American athlete and an Olympic champion. Rudolph was considered the fastest woman in the world in the 1960s and competed in two Olympic Games, in 1956 and in 1960. In the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome Rudolph became the first American woman to win three gold medals in track and field during a single Olympic Games.[1][2][3][4] A track and field champion, she elevated women's track to a major presence in the United States. As a member of the black community, she is also regarded as a civil rights and women's rights pioneer. Along with other 1960 Olympic athletes such as Cassius Clay, who later became Muhammad Ali, Rudolph became an international star due to the first international television coverage of the Olympics that year.[5] The powerful sprinter emerged from the 1960 Rome Olympics as "The Tornado, the fastest woman on earth".[6] The Italians nicknamed her La Gazzella Negra ("The Black Gazelle"); to the French she was La Perle Noire ("T ...

We forget, abandon and destroy our past. The famous Borscht Belt Catskill Mountain hotels and resorts although catering to Jewish guests for decades and decades last century were true Americana. The Grand Dame was Grossinger's which grew to 35 buildings on 1,200 acres accommodating 150,000 guests a year even had its own post office and airplane landing strip. Boxing champs like Rocky Marciano and Cassius Clay (I still call him that) trained here. It was the inspiration for "Dirty Dancing." They all became obsolete when jet travel became affordable for the masses.
Can we now rename Rafa as Cassius Clay?

Listen to these real niggaz: "One day I will be the first black president of South Africa." -Nelson Mandela, 1952. "I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was." Muhammad Ali "At home I am a nice guy: but I don't want the world to know. Humble people, I've found, don't get very far." Muhammad Ali (It was very difficult picking out which one is my absolute favourite of all Cassius Clay's quotes, you know I love rhymes too!) "When I think of competition it's like I try to create against the past. I think about Michelangelo and Picasso, you know, the pyramids." - Kanye West. "Yimi ingalabesi la." (lyric) - Mandoza. And a bonus quote, because it is so sick: "Don't be humble... you're not that great." Golda Meir (Kanye and Ali would find this so confusing, like, "the *** does this woman mean?")
26 years ago, TWENTY SIX!!! Years ago...

Photography: 1964: The World 50 Years Ago, by In Focus with Alan Taylor "1964 was an eventful year -- a half-century ago, humans were making strides toward space travel beyond the Earth's orbit, and Tokyo hosted the 18th Summer Olympics. The Beatles took America by storm, as Race Riots gripped big cities -- and the the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was signed into law. Boxer Cassius Clay became Muhammad Ali and the heavyweight champion of the world. Cyprus devolved into civil war between Turks and Greeks, and President Lyndon Johnson escalated U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War. This is the first of five entries focusing on events of the year 1964 this week (and next Monday). Later entries will feature images from civil rights struggles in the U.S., Beatlemania, Alaska's Good Friday earthquake, and the New York World's Fair.
On September 5, 1960, a "shy" 18-year-old Cassius Clay stepped into a Rome's Olympic ring to face Poland's Zbigniew Pietrzykowski and took home the gold.
This i want and must be with cassius clay ok im white but hay *** super cool
Here's my top ten Heavyweights of all time: 1. Cassius Clay - The Greatest 2. Joe Louis - Longest Reigning Champion 3. Evander Holyfield - Only 4 time Champion and 25 years near the top 4. Mike Tyson - He's Mike Tyson 5. The Klitschko Bros (more to be written) - Second Longest Reigning 6. Larry Holmes - 3rd longest reigning champion 7. Rocky Marciano - Only unbeaten Champion ever. 8. George Foreman - Oldest Lineal Champion 9. Lennox Lewis - Dominant 10. Jack Johnson - First black heavyweight champion I base this top ten on their accomplishments, not who would win against who, because clearly Lewis would have beaten Marciano and he did beat Tyson and Holyfield.
He’s wrestled with alligators and tussled with a whale. He’s handcuffed lightning and thrown thunder in jail. He’s Muhammad Ali, one of the most famous figures of the 20th century. A three-time heavyweight champion, Ali has taken on boxers, bigots, governments, and Parkinson’s, all the while mocking his foes with freestyle poetry. There are quite a few crazy facts and strange stories about the self-proclaimed “Greatest,” the man who shook up the world. A Stolen Bicycle Inspired His Career Before he could float like a butterfly and sting like a bee, Muhammad Ali was a 12-year-old boy looking for revenge. It was October 1954, and Ali (still known as Cassius Clay) was the proud owner of a red Schwinn bicycle. It was a Christmas gift from his dad, and he planned on riding it to a bazaar in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. He and a buddy spent the day checking out the stalls and munching on popcorn, but when Ali was ready to go home, he found someone had stolen his prized bike. Tears streaming ...

A young Cassius Clay wins gold in the light heavyweight division at the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome…
Believe It or Leave It! 4/3 100 years ago, the assassination of the Archduke Ferdinand precipitated The Great European War. In a smaller skirmish 50 years later, underdog Cassius Clay defeated Sonny Liston to claim boxing's Heavyweight Championship belt. The NFL Baltimore Ravens have three mascots - Edgar, Allan, and Poe. Between 1970 and 1983, many watch buyers gave up analog mechanical timepieces for digital devices. Switzerland lost half its watch companies, two-thirds of its watchmaking jobs and its singular status as the world’s most reliable timekeepers. Industry insiders dubbed it the “quartz crisis.”

Charles L. "Sonny" Liston (unknown – December 30, 1970) was an American professional boxer known for his toughness, punching power and intimidating appearance. He became World Heavyweight Champion in 1962 by knocking out Floyd Patterson in the first round. Liston failed to live up to his fearsome reputation when he lost the title in 1964 to 7-1 underdog Muhammad Ali (then known as Cassius Clay). Underworld connections and an early death—along with his unrecorded date of birth—added to the enigma. The Ring magazine ranked Liston as the 7th greatest heavyweight of all-time in 1998 and the 15th greatest puncher of all-time in 2003. There is no official record of his birth. He was born on a farm in Arkansas, a state which did not require mandatory birth certificates until 1965. Liston told sportswriter Jerry Izenberg that his date of birth was carved on a tree, but it was chopped down. When Liston was arrested for robbery in 1950, he gave his age as 22. When he filed for a birth certificate for legal re ...
Boxers Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali) and Sonny Liston during their heavyweight rematch, in Lewisto...
Sherman was called a thug & harassed by white people for being a passionate football player, but water down Riley Cooper
No more Draddie aha it's a cashez ting. Originated from the great Cassius Clay aka Muhammad Ali
Cassius Clay.. Only the best to ever be in a ring with boxing gloves on.
Cassius Clay's Pearly Whites must be a joke because the song is literally a mix of things I don't even know
if Cooper is guilty of anything its bing an entitled a-hole.u think ppl who havent said racial slur publicly cant b racist?
are you saying when he was Cassius clay or just him in general?
so why is cooper playing he actual threatened BLACK PEOPLE. Or N*S. Those arent signs!?!
so 1 person kills somebody now everybody is a killer? So are all white people serial killers? NO
yea players like Aaron Hernandez.. clubs these days don't want that type of risk
if your frm poverty on the west coast the area you live in has gang ties. Period. U from there dont mean u kill people
Chip Kelly offense is designed to spread the field & do it quickly, who was his key guy to make that happen
We get exactly what you saying & I'm telling you you're smacked he was a crucial factor to that offense
u should of reworded what u said then. And we will see. Pass offense is not as explosive without djax
I'm not saying he's not good I'm just saying he's not a crucial factor in their success
djax fid his thing with McNabb Vick and Foles. These dudes dont know anything
A coach is as good as his players dummy & that offense was clicking when Vick was at QB so yea...DJ & Shady
dude Djax had a name b4 chip Kelly hes a 3 time probowler thats the point
The same way Sherman was a thug for expressing himself after a clutch win/performance...y'all can label him why not Riley?
chip Kelly was the key to that offense. Nick foles also had a huge year
He thinks that DJ wasn't the key to that offense besides Shady
yet he still outperforms him by ALOT
if Riley Cooper is so racist then why would he play in a sport with mainly blacks? He said a slur while drunk out of anger.
Him & McCoy was the keys to that offense dummy, Riley only got 1on1 coverage cause DJ stretched the field
domain names
a product of the system everyone on that team had huge years. He's clearly not that important if they let him go
DJ was coming off his best season of his career tho...
their team stated it wasn't for that reason. Copper messed up but he still works hard. DJ obviously didn't
shows us that who is a racist..isn't as bad as since he knows gang members..Oops…
These females roaming the Mall Of Georgia is beautiful
Let me be great!... Pre workout got me feeling like Cassius Clay
Abolitionist Cassius Clay sent this original letter to the American Antislavery Society:

"Clement Attlee, he was a boxer wasn't he?""No, prime minister." "Oh yeah, I was thinking of Cassius Clay."

I don't care what J Edgar Hoover and the FBI say, Cassius Clay was too good for Sonny Liston who had been the best of his day. There was no fix Clay was a brilliant fighter and a great role model to lots of young people, particularly black ones.
Muhammad Ali: FBI probed 1964 Sonny Liston fight for match-fixing Muhammad Ali's first world title win over Sonny Liston was the subject of a match-fixing investigation by the FBI. Liston, who was a heavy favourite to win, retired after the seventh round as Ali - then known as Cassius Clay - became world champion at 22. Fifty years on, it has emerged that the FBI - led by director John Edgar Hoover - suspected Las Vegas gambler Ash Resnick of fixing the bout in Miami, Florida. No conclusive evidence was found.
