For my Physical Exercise project I had to make a presentation based on a famous sports team, a popular sport or a famous athlete. I chose to develop my presentation on the famous boxer Muhammad Ali.
Throughout the making of this project I have learned many new things about this historical man.
A summary of Muhammad Ali’s History is detailed below:
- Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. was born in Louisville, Kentucky in January 17,1942 and passed on June 3, 2016 at 74.
- In 1964, he changed his name to Muhammad Ali as a result of changing to the Islamic religion.
- At 6 feet 3 inches, he was an imposing figure in the ring, known for his swift footwork, and powerful jab.
Some of Ali’s achievements are also mentioned within the slide –
Ali fought in 61 fights over a professional career lasting 21 years and won 56 of those fights including 37 knockouts.
1 Light-heavyweight Olympic gold medal (1960)
3 times crowned World Heavyweight Champion (1964, 1974, & 1978)
Involved in several historic boxing matches: the “Fight of the Century“, “Super Fight II“ and “The Rumble in the Jungle“.
I also included the presentation slides together below.
