Historians and leading sports journalists agree that Muhammad Ali is one of the greatest sports figures of the century. Early in his boxing career, he developed an usual style of dancing foot work and heavy blows to his opponents head. His brazen taunts and charismatic personality made him electrifying for the media both inside and outside of the ring. In 1974, he fought and won in the one of the most famous boxing matches of all time, “Rumble in the Jungle”, against then heavy weight champion George Foreman. Although stricken with Parkinson's disease later in life, Ali remains a sports legend and celebrated athlete.
