Was and is still is the most polarizing athlete ever. That's one distinction the sport of boxing should always be proud of. Beckam, Jordan, Andretti, Ruth, Woods along with a host of other great athletes still don't add up to Ali's status as the most polarizing athlete.

I'm not an Ali fan, but I totally agree with this.

It's hard to find someone that doesn't know who Muhammad Ali is

It's fair to say he's the most recognisable sportsman of any kind ever.

Let's put it this way,

He's the only fighter who has ever been able to claim he is bigger than Boxing, and nobody doubted him for a second.
