Cassius Clay and Liberace An unlikely combination to be sure: On a 1963 Jack Paar Show, Cassius Clay (he was not yet Muhammad Ali) reads one of his self-aggrandizing poems while Liberace provides the piano accompaniment.

Howard Cosell picks Foreman to beat Ali Like most boxing fans, Howard Cosell figured 32-year-old Muhammad Ali had no chance to regain the world heavyweight title whe he stepped into the ring to face 25-year-old George Foreman in Zaire in 1974. (Ali won by an eighth-round knockout.) In 1964 Cosell picked Sonny Liston to beat Ali (then Cassius Clay) in one round. Clay won the title that night when Liston failed to come out for the seventh round.

Muhammad Ali Says I Am King Cassius Clay/Muhammad Ali graces the cover of the April 1964 edition of The Ring magazine, modestly proclaiming himself to be 'the king' after his title-winning upset over Sonny Liston in February. After his victory, Clay announced to the world that he was shedding his 'slave name.' He briefly called himself 'Cassius X' before adopting the name Muhammad Ali. Nevertheless, many media folks continued to refer to him as Cassius Clay well into the 1970s.

Henry Cooper Decks Cassius Clay The most critical moment in the boxing career of Cassius Clay (later Muhammad Ali) occurred in this June 18, 1963 fight at London's Wembley stadium versus lightly regarded British champion Henry Cooper. A Clay victory would pretty much assure him of a title fight versus Sonny Liston. But wait! Watch Clay get decked by a Cooper left hook at the end of round four. Round five was delayed slightly when a tear in one of Clay's gloves was brought to the attention of referee Tommy Little. Some people believe the extra few seconds between rounds--and it was only a slight delay despite the persistent myth that claims round five was delayed anywhere from three to ten minutes--allowed the dazed Clay precious extra time to recover his senses.

Cassius Clay and the Beatles 1964 When the Beatles arrived in the United States in February 1964, Miami was a tour stop. (One Ed Sullivan Show was broadcast from there.) During their time in Florida the Beatles dropped in on Cassius Clay who was in training for his upcoming title encounter with world heavyweight champion Sonny Liston. The Fab Four and the Louisville Lip posed for a few publicity photos together, like the one shown below. According to some reports, Clay--soon to be Muhammad Ali--had no idea who the Beatles were.

Olympic Sprinter Wilma Rudolph Twenty-year-old American sprinter Wilma Rudolph won three gold medals at the 1960 Rome Olympics. Her championships came in the women's 100 metres, 200 metres, and 4 x 100 relay. Rudolph had also been a member of the 1956 U.S. Olympic team in Melbourne as a 16-year-old. Remarkably, Rudolph was a sickly child who had to walk with the assistance of leg braces. Another member of the 1960 U.S. Olympic team was admittedly smitten by Rudolph: an 18-year-old boxer from Louisville named Cassius Clay. Clay/Ali and Rudolph became friends and often appeared at charity fund-raisers together for many years afterwards. Rudolph only lived to be 54, dying of brain cancer in 1994.

Radio Broadcast of Clay-Liston Bout This is something you may never have heard before: the ABC Radio broadcast of the first round of the historic Cassius Clay-Sonny Liston world heavyweight championship fight from Miami Beach on February 25, 1964. It has been superimposed onto the fight film. The broadcast team was Howard Cosell (providing color) and Les Keiter (calling the fight). Liston was a huge 7-1 betting favorite, and understandably so. He won the world title by destroying Floyd Patterson in less than one round in 1962 and beat Patterson just as easily in the return bout in 1963. Clay, at age 22, was thought to be no match for the fearsome Liston despite his cocky prefight antics. Most fans expected an easy Liston victory. Watch, though, as Clay changes boxing history in the first round with his deft ring movement.

Ali-Liston Phantom Punch Fight - 1965 Perhaps the most controversial fight in boxing history: Ali-Liston II in Lewiston, ME on May 25, 1965. Ali (then Cassius Clay) had upset Liston on February 25, 1964 in Miami to win the world heavyweight title. The rematch, scheduled for Boston, was delayed by a few months because Ali needed emergency hernia surgery. By the time Ali had healed, he was tremendously unpopular because of his ties with the Black Muslims. Liston had connections in organized crime. Boston wanted no part of the fight, so it was moved to a high school hockey arena in Lewiston. Rumors that something odd would happen circulated before the fight. Watch Ali's famous "phantom punch" knock out Liston, a man who had never been floored before. Some people think it is a perfect punch. Others think Liston took a dive. Also watch ex-champ Jersey Joe Walcott botch the refereeing. Ali never goes to a neutral corner, yet Liston is somehow counted out. Ali wasn't exactly a one-punch knockout artist. He only had two first-round knockouts in his pro career. Renowned sports writer Red Smith, one of many respected journalists who maintained the fight was fixed, said, "I saw the punch; it wouldn't have crushed a grape."
