Young Muhammad Ali

Young Muhammad Ali

On April 28, 1967, Muhammad Ali walked into an army induction center in Houston, Texas. There he would inform the draft board that he was refusing to take the army oath, saying he was exempt because of his ministership in the Nation of Islam. On April 28, 1967, the same day Ali refused to be inducted, the New York State boxing commission indefinitely suspended his license to box and stripped him of the title of heavyweight champion of the world.
