Muhammad Ali King of the Ring by Stephen Timblin
  

Synopsis

Muhammad Ali King of the Ring by Stephen Timblin

He floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee, darting and dancing his way to boxing's heavyweight world championship. In the process, the fleet-footed and motor-mouthed fighter became King of the Ring and more: a cultural icon who dominated headlines, generated controversy and enthralled even those audiences uninterested in the sport. Readers will discover fascinating facts about this dazzling champ including: that he began boxing at only age 12; his involvement in the controversial Nation of Islam; what happened when he refused to fight in the Vietnam War; his present-day battle with Parkinson's Syndrome; and more.
