Muhammad Ali first began boxing as a young boy, living in a very small home in Louisville, Kentucky.
The tiny, one story home is now in a state of disrepair, worth only about $23,000.
The owner is trying to sell it for $50,000, riding off its historic value.
While living at the house, at age 12 his bike was stolen. He decided to take up boxing because he wanted to find and beat up the thief.
That was just the humble beginning of the greatest boxer in the history of time.

Fortunately, Muhammad Ali is in better shape now, but his family had a scare when the former heavyweight champ of the world was rushed to the hospital on Novemeber 19th, just 5 days after attending Joe Frazier's funeral.
According to authorities, Ali slipped out of consciousness in the Arizona home he shares with his wife and 911 was called, as a spokesman for the local police explained:
"The victim started to pass out in the car and when they got him into the house he fell unconscious. The 911 tape was filled with details of prescriptions and medical details about the victim who was suffering from an ongoing medical condition. The police department transferred the call to the Fire Unit who sent paramedics."
The 69-year-old, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, was taken hospital and treated for an unknown period of time, but sources say he was able to enjoy Thanksgiving in Las Vegas with his family.
What ever happened, it must have been an absolute emergency because an insider revealed:
"He has many medical specialists in Phoenix in his life — some that are renowned doctors in Parkinson's and other fields that have even become close friends with him and the family. So for the family to call 911 for help — they must have really been scared."
Let's hope his condition is not as serious as that grim quote suggests and he'll be fighting Parkinson's for year and years to come.
