However, my interest in boxing was enhanced watching Muhammad Ali on the YouTube, but I love to watch Floyd Mayweather, Carl Froch, and Ricky Hatton, he said.

Muhammad Ali is trying to gain the attention of the people. His name has raised an interesting debate among the people. A few think that he is named after the legendary boxer, Muhammad Ali. However, his father has disclosed that he wasn't named after him. “This name is seen as normal in Pakistan; it may be associated with boxing in USA and UK, said Ali’s father.

Ali’s father was always keen to make his son gain quality education along with pursuing his career in boxing. Muhammad Ali is doing a certificate in Sports at the Edge Hill University. He determines education as necessary, regardless of what career you have adopted. His father has played a key role in the development of Ali.
