Muhammad Ali is considered to be a great boxing champion simply because he was so much more than just a boxer; he was history.

It can be hard for those of us who grew up after Ali’s career ended to appreciate his legacy. 
Appreciating his skills as a boxer, on the other hand? That’s easy. All you need is YouTube to see what he could do.
Ali declared himself “the greatest of all time” before it was true. But then he made it true. 
Do check out ‘Hang Up Extra: The Understanding Ali Edition’ for he never claimed to be perfect though, and neither was he. But hands down, he was the greatest.
