Muhammad Ali has an awesome story to tell, it all started with a stolen bike.
Back in 1954 in Louisville, Kentucky, 12 year old Muhammad Ali’s bike was stolen while he and his friend were at a Columbia Auditorium.
Looking for the bike Ali and his friend happen to narrate the incident to a local cop named Joe Martin at the gym.
Ali told Martin he was going to “whup” whoever stole his bike. “You better learn to box first” said Martin
Little did Ali know that for the next 30 years, he would be the greatest man in that ring.
Even in his youth, he had dreams of being heavyweight champion of the world.
He always knew he was the Greatest, even before he knew he was.
