DEPICTING Muhammad Ali/Cleveland Summit

“Muhammad Ali is known as the Greatest of All Time. In my eyes, he is The Greatest not for his battles in the ring, but for his battles outside the ring. His battles in the ring became symbols for his willingness to put his body on the line for freedom and equality. He made boxing about something bigger than throwing punches. He made it a symbol for what it means to fight for what you believe in.”—David  Alekhuogie
