Muhammad Ali Earnings:
Ali was not the only boxer who got a hefty check of $ 1 million for a single fight. Rather in 1927 it was Gene Tunney who became the first boxer to get $ 1 million for a fight. It was a rematch against Jack Dempsey. Still, when it comes to earnings, he was a commercially successful boxer, as he made $2.5 million in 1971 to fight Joe Frazier. If adjusted as per inflation it would easily cross $ 15 million of today.
Then later in 1974, he fought George Foreman, earning $5.45 million. However, his highest earning dates back to 1980 when he earned a whopping $7.9 million for fighting Larry Holmes.
Born on January 17, 1942, in Louisville, Ali was previously known as Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr. He had four brothers and one sister. Coming from an African descent, Ali started boxing when once his bike was stolen. He was furious and seeing an opportunity, boxing coach Joe E. Martin, channelized his anger into boxing. Back then 12 years old Clay wanted to “whup” the thief, so in order to do so, he agreed to Joe E. Martin and started practicing rigorously.
