Description

He floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee, darting and dancing his way to boxing's heavyweight world championship. In the process, the fleet-footed and motormouthed fighter became King of the Ring and more: a cultural icon who dominated headlines, generated controversy, and enthralled even those audiences uninterested in the sport. Learn the fascinating facts about this dazzling champ: -How he began boxing at only age 12--and the trainer who first knew he was something special- His involvement in the controversial Nation of Islam- What happened when he refused to fight in the Vietnam War- Round-by-round coverage of his "Rumble in the Jungle" and "Thrilla in Manila" matchups with George Foreman and nemesis Joe Frazier- His present-day battle with Parkinson's Syndrome
