A young Cassius Clay likes them at 5' 10" and 150 lbs.,,,,,and clean.

Well that eliminates Monica Lewinsky,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Ali probably didn't fully understand what he got into with the U.S. government when he refused the draft, but stood his ground against going to fight a war to kill other people whether guilty or innocent, that he never met before. It took a lot of guts to stand up for his religious beliefs at the time, to be stripped of his title, lose a whole lot of endorsement money and his banishment from the sport. He's a hero in my mind for what he stood for, and any questions about his integrity were fully answered as a result of his decision.

I don't like the way he picked at his opponents with his pre-fight BS, but he's a guy who backed up what came out of his mouth. Even if it meant taking a beating for it, inside and outside the ring he was a champion. The man was a children's champion, always making time for the kids which alot of atheletes choose to ignore.
