What Made Some People Think Muhammad Ali Was Gay?

Muhammad Ali is known by many as the greatest heavyweight and one of the greatest athletes in boxing history.  Besides being a boxer, he is also a social activist and philanthropist.  He was born January 17, 1942 in Louisville, KY as Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr.  Ali first discovered his talent for boxing at the age of 12.  His bike had been stolen, and when Ali told police officer Joe Martin that he wanted to beat up the thief, Martin told he had needed to learn how to fight before he challenged people.  Martin also happened to be a trainer for young boxer and started working with Ali.

Ali fought his first amateur bout in 1954 and won the Golden Gloves tournament in 1956 for novices.  In just three short years, he went on to win the National Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions and the Amateur Athletic Union’s national title for light-heavyweight division.  The awards and recognition continued to stack up with Ali winning a spot on the 1960 U.S. Olympic boxing team and going on to win the gold medal.  In 1964, Ali became the heavyweight champion of the world by knocking out Sonny Liston.

After being forced out of boxing by having his conscientious objector status to the Vietnam War denied and being found guilty of refusing to be inducted into the military, Ali made a comeback starting in 1970.  He went on to have epic battles with Joe Frazier and George Foreman, but by the late 1970s, the glory days of his career were ending.

Over the course of his career, Ali became known as somewhat of a womanizer.  He has been married four times and conceived multiple children outside of his marriages.  Despite his love for women, some speculated early in his career that he was gay.  The video chronicles the beginning of Ali’s career and what led some people to question his sexuality.
