Muhammad Ali was not called the greatest boxer of all time simply for his unmatched skills. He was also admired for his humility. And this clip that has resurfaced online is perhaps the perfect example of it. Muhammad Ali can be seen in the boxing ring ready for a match. But what is rather unusual is his opponent. The toddler is all prepared for a fight with his boxing gloves on. As he landed one punch after another, Ali played along with his fan. At the end of the video, the toddler gives Muhammad Ali a peck on his cheek, and that is exactly why this is a wonderful fight. Take a peek here:

Muhammad Ali, born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr. was an American professional boxer and social activist. He created history when he became the first fighter to win the world heavyweight championship on three separate occasions. A title he successfully defended 19 times. At the age of 12 years, he began boxing under the tutelage of Joe Martin, a Louisville policeman. After clearing the amateur ranks, he won a gold medal in the 175-pound division at the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome. In his early days as a professional, Muhammad Ali was highly regarded for his charm and personality along with his skills with the boxing gloves.
Muhammad Ali was involved in the biggest fights in the history of boxing. Ali, know for his swift footwork, had many interesting fights against his rival Joe Frazier. Though his most famous bout remains the “The Rumble In the Jungle”, a championship fight against George Foreman in Kishasa, Zaire. Foreman was 37-0 at that time and was much younger at 25, than 32-year-old Muhammad Ali. But then Ali was too good, he prevailed and won the match through a knockout.
