Cassius Clay. February 25, 1964. Liston failed to come out for the 7th. ALI BEAT HIM TWO TIMES.
3. He beat Sonny Liston in 1964, then George Foreman in 1974, then lost and regained the title from Leon Spinks in 1978.
In his professional career, Ali defeated Joe Frazier, Jerry Quarry, Ken Norton, and Sonny Liston twice. He lost once to both Frazier and Norton.
3 times against: George Foreman Sonny Liston and cant remember Hi, the third time he won it by unanimous decision from Leon Spinks in 1978, about 7 months after losing the Championship to Spinks by split decision. ..:: Jeff ::..
boxing. he won the world title 3 times, beating Charles "sonny" liston in 1964, george foreman in '74 and leon spinks in their '78 rematch. ali failed in a forth attempt against Larry Holmes in 1980
he beat sonny liston in 1964 to win the title the first time. he beat george foreman in 1974 to win it the second time he beat leon spinks in the rematch in 1978 to become the first man to win the heavyweight championship 3 times.
Muhammad Ali has had 61 fights he only won 56 of them he has won 37 times by KO's
winning a gold medal in the 1960 olympics beating sonny liston for his first world title beating george foreman for his second world title his titanic stuggle with joe frazier in their third fight in manilla winning the heavyweight title three times, and beating the first three guys to defeat him, in rematches. quick reflexes, foot and hand speed, fitness, strong chin. considered by many the greatest heavyweight boxer in history.
Officially, four times. The men responsible were Sonny Banks, Henry Cooper, Joe Frazier and Chuck Wepner. Shavers knocked Ali down during their fight but the ref ruled it a slip. Hope this helped! :)
Muhammad Ali, formerly Cassius Marcellus Clay fought against mamy great boxers. He must be regarded as possibly the greatest of all time. He fought against Sonny Liston twice I think, Joe Frazier 3 times, and Geoge Foreman twice I think in Title fights. He said he was the greatest. Few would argue....
Ali won the Heavyweight Title on 3 different times Ali first won the Heavyweight Title when he stopped Sonny Liston on February 25, 1964. Ali won the Heavyweight Title the 2nd time when he stopped George Foreman on October 30, 1974. Ali won the Heavyweight Title a 3rd time when he beat Leon Spinks on September 15, 1978.
