Ali was born to Cassius Marcellus Clay Sr. and Odessa Clay on July 18, 1944, 15 months after his brother Cassius. Muhammad started boxing in a Louisville, Kentucky amateur boxing league. While he went to the 1960 Olympics, Rahman was not selected and remained amateur until February 25, 1964, the night his brother won one of his heavyweight titles over Sonny Liston. As a professional boxer, Rahman won 14 bouts, lost 3, and had one draw. In his career, he knocked out seven opponents and was himself knocked out once. After back-to-back losses ending with Rahaman being knocked out by Jack O'Halloran, he retired from professional boxing. Rahaman released his autobiography on January 17, 2015, with a book titled, That's Muhammad Ali's Brother! My Life on the Undercard, which is co-authored by H. Ron Brashear and the foreword written by Gene Kilroy - the longtime business manager of Muhammad Ali. In 2019, Rahaman released his 2nd book titled My Brother, Muhammad Ali - The Definitive Biography. It is co-authored by Fiaz Rafiq, with the foreword written by NFL legend Jim Brown. The book is currently published in eight different languages around the world.
