and was convicted of draft evasion.

This is a scene from a party

after Clay beat Sonny Liston for the heavyweight title.

 

Such is the power of his celebrity,

the assembled crowd are jostling around him simply to watch him eat.

 

The proximity of Malcolm X to Clay serves as a neat metaphor

for the closeness of their relationship at that time.

Muhammad Ali Evolved

From a Blockbuster Fighter to a Country’s Conscience

Muhammad Ali refused to join the US Army

for military service in Vietnam

and was sentenced to five years’ imprisonment.

The sentence was later overturned,

but Ali was stripped of his title

and banned from fighting for more than three years

 


CASSIUS MARCELLUS CLAY, the world heavyweight champion who prefers to be known by his Black Muslim name of Muhammad Ali, today refused to be inducted into the United States Army. He declined to take the traditional step forward when called upon to take the oath by the commanding officer at the induction centre in Houston, Texas, even though he was addressed first as “Muhammad Ali” and then as “Cassius Clay”.

Clay now faces the possibility of a prison sentence of five years and a fine of up to $10,000, the penalties the Government can invoke against him as a “draft dodger”. However, if his lawyers contest the case through the courts, the proceedings might last for two years.

In New York, the state athletic commission announced that Clay would be stripped of his world title if he went to prison, as he would not then be able to defend his title. An elimination tournament would be held to find a successor. The World Boxing Association and other controlling groups may be expected to take similar action.

Later Clay issued a four-page statement saying: “It is in the light of my consciousness as a Muslim minister and my personal convictions that I take my stand in rejecting to be inducted into the armed services.
