As Cassius Clay, Ali won the light heavyweight gold medal at the 1960 Olympics and began the road to a highly successful heavyweight career. In 1964, Ali surprised the world by beating Sonny Liston and after the fight he changed his name to Ali after adopting Islam. Ali’s title was stripped from him in 1967 when Ali refused the draft but he regained it, eventually, in 1974 by beating George Foreman. Ali successfully defended his title several times until the early 80’s when his career was over.
