In terms of a shortlist for the most inspirational people in the world. Few would not have the great Muhammad Ali somewhere near the very top of their list. Ali was a once in a generation sportsman and political activist who bridged the divide between the two. Born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr in 1942, Ali grew up in an era where the rights of black people in America were very much secondary. Throughout his time on this planet he was very much outspoken on the treatment of his people and their place in a modern America.
In the realm of boxing itself, Ali was recognized by many as one of the greatest to ever step inside the squared circle. His combined prowess inside the ropes, along with his personal charisma and charm. Made him a very unique character in world history. To this day his words and deeds are revered by many, yet still frowned upon by some. But there can be no denying the impact the young kid from Louisville, Kentucky had on the world.
