The Late Muhammad Ali Enjoying Himself in Africa (Ghana, Nigeria, and Egypt)


American WBA Heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali on the the throne of his namesake, Mohammed Ali Pasha, at Al-Gawhara Palace, Cairo, Egypt, June 9, 1964.


By the time Ali’s motorcade reached the government-owned, six-story Ambassador Hotel, it seemed as if the entire city was trailing behind it. Countless locals camped outside the hotel, hoping to get a glimpse of him. Not wanting to disappoint them, Ali emerged into view on the terrace, shouting below, “Who’s the king?”

“You are!” the crowd thundered.
