Muhammad Ali O Magazine

O Magazine interview

1 Jan, 1970

Ali talks about being arguably the most famous person on Earth:

It’s surprising, but I never realized why I was so famous. The name Muhammad is the most common name in the world. In all the countries around the world—Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon—there are more Muhammads than anything else. When I joined the Nation of Islam and became a Muslim, they gave me the most famous name because I was the champ.
