Muhammad Ali, whom many proclaim as the greatest boxer of all time, celebrated his 70th birthday Jan. 17. Noted for his lightning quick feet, hands and mouth, the Louisville, Ky., native won the Golden Gloves Tournament in 1959 and an Olympic gold medal in 1960. During the 1960s, Ali won all his bouts, the majority of them by knockout. Among his most noted matches were a number of bouts he fought against Joe Frazier and George Foreman.
