Muhammad Ali was born in Kentucky, in the United States. Since Clay grows up in a region where most of the black people live, he began to suffer racism from a young age. He started to boxing age at 12 and he became 3 times World Heavyweight Boxing Champion until 1980. In 2016, he was died because of Parkinson disease. Muhammad Ali was followed intensely in Turkey after he became a Muslim. For many years his matches have been followed by Turks and his struggles inspired them. Until present, however, no studies have been done to investigate the meaning and significance of Muhammad Ali for the Turkish people. Because of this reason, in order to reveal the meaning and significance of Muhammad Ali for the Turks, people' testimonies who have watched his matches between 1970-1980 were utilized. Since this study is to aim to reveal memories of people that watched Muhammad Ali's matches between 1970 and 1980, a biographical oral history study was carried out. The study's data sources are oral history interviews and literature sources. The source persons were selected according to criterion sample method, one of the purposive sampling methods. The data were evaluated by using descriptive analysis. This study's results show that Muhammad Ali's matches were intensively watched in Turkey because he is a Muslim, also he struggled injustices and segregation against black people, refuse to go to Vietnam War and being sensitive to social problems. Based on these results, it is possible to conclude that Muhammad Ali will remain an example of children for many more years in Turkey.
