Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, and colour in this fun colouring page of Muhammad Ali!
Muhammad Ali (1942 - 2016) was named Cassius Clay, Jr as a child, but changed his name to Muhammad Ali when he became a Muslim in 1975. Muhammad Ali was a heavyweight boxer and won a gold medal at the Rome Summer Olympics in 1960, but his Olympic medal was not the reason he became famous worldwide as much as several historic boxing matches against other heavyweights over the years, his interesting style and his "bragging" about how good he was!
Fun fact: When Muhammad Ali (then Cassius Clay) was 12 years old his bike was stolen. He told a policeman, who also happened to be a boxing coach, that he was going to "whup" the thief. The policeman told him that he ought to learn to box first!
“I hated every minute of training, but I said, "Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion."
