He was fond of sports and liked running and cycling. Once his bicycle was stolen and the boy got furious. He told to the policeman that he would beat the thief to death. The thief had never been found, but Clay Jr. started to go in for boxing to be ready to meet his bike burglar.
Soon he got interested. Cassius was extremely talented. He could win the fight with the strongest fellow in the club.
His great physiques helped him to win. He was huge, his fists were enormous and nobody could resist him.

He had spent wonderful life. During the last years he became a very religious person and spent much money for charity.
Ali was asked: “What would you like people to think about you when you are gone?”
“I would like for them to say.
He took a few cups of love.
He took one tablespoon of patience,
One tea spoon of generosity,
One pin of kindness;
He took one quater of laughter,
one pinch of concern,
And then he mixed willingness.
He added lot of faith,
and he stirred it up well.
Then he spread it over a span of
a life time, and he served it to
each and every deresving
person he met”.
