Muhammad Ali to be named 'King of Boxing'

Former world heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Al will be named "King of Boxing" at the 50th convention of the World Boxing Council, which will begin on Monday in Mexico's Caribbean coastal resort of Cancun. The "crowning" of Ali will be one of the main events at the convention celebrating the 50th year of the WBC, which is headed by Mexican Jose Sulaiman. The WBC said that Ali's proclamation would take place at a ceremony attended by about 100 world champions and ex-champs. "It will be a recognition for an entire life of greatness. There's nobody in the world who has done what Ali has done," Sulaiman said.

Sulaiman, who has been WBC president since 1975, said that Ali deserved the honour "which he needs more" at this point in his life. The former world champion has suffered from Parkinson's Disease for years. The WBC was founded in 1963 by then-Mexican President Adolfo Lopez Mateos.

This here's the story of Cassius Clay
Who changed his name to Muhammad Ali
He knows how to talk and he knows how to fight
And all the contenders were beat out of sight

Sing, Muhammad, Muhammad Ali
He floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee
Mohammed, the black superman
Who calls to the other guy I'm Ali catch me if you can

Now all you fight fans, you've got to agree
There ain't no flies on Muhammad Ali
He fills the arena wherever he goes
And everyone gets what they paid for

Muhammad, was known to have said
You watch me shuffle and I'll jab off your head
He moves like the black superman
And calls to the other guy I'm Ali catch me if you can

He says I'm the greatest the worlds ever seen
The heavyweight champion who came back again
My face is so pretty you don't see a scar
Which proves I'm the king of the ring by far

Sing, Muhammad, Muhammad Ali
He floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee
Mohammed, the black superman

Who call to the other guy I'm Ali catch me if you can

Sing, Muhammad, Muhammad Ali
He floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee
Muhammad, the black superman
Who calls to the other guy I'm Ali catch me if you can

I'm Ali catch me if you can
