Best Answer

Ali is believed to have earned $60, million in purses as a professional, and squandered it by the time he retired, but makes his living nowadays with public appearances.

he got $5.5 million for fighting foreman and two and a half million for the first Joe Frazier fight,

Don King screwed him on the Larry Holmes fight and i think he only got $20,000 plus another $50,000 out of court settlement when he tried to sue.

What are three things Muhammed Ali is afraid of?

This is an opinion and I'm going to say he has no fear: "Now you see me, now you don't.

Just as religions do - they all contain truths."Muhammad Ali "I'm a Muslim. I've been a Muslim for 20 years. . . . You know me. I'm a boxer. I've been called the greatest.

And it doesn't matter which color does the hating.
