The Champ's Comeback

Ali came back with a vengeance, winning the Rumble in the Jungle against George Foreman in 1974 and the Thrilla in Manilla fight against Joe Frazier in 1975. Then the champ lent his hand to charitable organizations like the Special Olympics, the United Nations as a Peace Ambassador, Make a Wish foundation and his own Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center in Phoenix. (Photo: AP Photo, File)
