His speed was the one thing he was most famous for, he would punch an opponent in a matter of milliseconds and had reflexes like never seen before, he would dance around the ring, entertaining the crowd, and talk trash to his opponents, he was a true showman and did it all while dominating his in the ring.

He is a one-time gold medalist in the Olympics, he was the world heavyweight champion from 1964 to 1967, and in 1974 he was recognized as a Fighter of the Year by the boxing writers association.

He was again the World heavyweight champion from 1974 to 1978 and then from 1978-79,  he was inducted into the international boxing Hall of Fame in 1990, these are just his boxing records, but what he has done off the court is also why he is wildly known as the greatest sportsman in the history of American sports.
