In the process, the fleet-footed and motormouthed fighter became "King of the Ring" and a cultural icon who dominated headlines, generated controversy, and enthralled even those audiences uninterested in the sport. Learn about how he began boxing at only age 12, 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, and his battle with Parkinson's.
