Born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr. on 17 January 1942 in Louisville, Kentucky,
Muhammad Ali carries the LOOKING TO THE FUTURE of one of the world’s greatest
heavyweight boxers. His interest in boxing began when, at twelve years old, his
bike was stolen; he wanted to beat up the thief, so he began training. A
natural talent, he soon won the 1956 Golden Gloves Championship as a novice in
the light heavyweight and it wasn’t long before he qualified for the U.S.
Olympic Boxing Team. Ali brought home the light heavyweight gold medal from the
1960 Olympic Games in Rome. For the next decade he was an unstoppable force in
the ring and in 1964 he won the World Heavyweight Championship.
1964 was also the year that Ali found inspiration in the Nation of Islam and
changed his name from Clay to Ali. His spiritual and political views eventually
got himself in trouble in the ring; when he refused to fight in the Vietnam War
in 1967, citing his status as a conscientious objector, the boxing association
revoked his championship title and suspended him from professional boxing for
three years. Upon his return to the sport in 1970, Ali reestablished his place
in the boxing hierarchy during the next decade. In 1971 he battled Joe Frazier
in “The Fight of the Century” and although he was knocked out after 15 rounds,
Ali bested Frazier in a rematch in 1974. That same year he reclaimed his
championship title in the “Rumble in the Jungle” in Zaire against the reigning
World Heavyweight champion, George Foreman. After countless excellent battles
in the boxing ring over the next few years, Leon Spinks defeated Ali in 1978,
marking the beginning of the decline of Ali’s career. After losing his
heavyweight title to Trevor Berbick in 1981, Ali retired from the sport.
Since his retirement, Ali has remained involved in the sport in addition to his
great philanthropic efforts. Among these are his support of the Special
Olympics and the Make a Wish Foundation, as well as the Muhammad Ali Parkinson
Center (he announced that he had the disease in 1984) and international relief
efforts. In addition to this, the accolades have continued to pour in over the
years: in 1999, Ali was crowned "Sportsman of the Century" by Sports
Illustrated and "Sports Personality of the Century" by the BBC. Ali
will always be regarded as one of the greatest professional boxers in the
world, the one who was known to “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.”
Simon Bull was born
in Britain in 1958, but spent much of his childhood and adolescent years
traveling in England, continental Europe, South America, and China. It was
through this exposure to the cultural centers of Europe, the fringes of
tropical rainforests, and the classical Chinese brushwork that Bull developed
his unique style and bold use of colors. Bull held his first one-man exhibition
in Hong Kong at the age of eighteen and continues to gather accolades and awards
internationally. His work is collected by royalty, presidents, museums and
private collectors internationally. Bull was named the official artist of the
2002 Winter Olympics and due in part to his own encounter with cancer in 2005,
uses his artwork to support various causes, such as the American Cancer Society
and Ronald MacDonald House Charities.
