The world's greatest living boxer  turns 70 years old  today.  Muhammad Ali was born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr., Jan. 17, 1942.        Nicknamed "The Greatest," Ali was involved in several historic  boxing  matches. Notable among these were three with rival  Joe Frazier , which are considered among the greatest in boxing history, and one with  George Foreman , where he finally regained his stripped titles seven years later.       Ali was well known for his unorthodox fighting style, which he described as "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee", and employing techniques such as the Ali Shuffle and the  rope-a-dope.      The larger-than-life boxer is a physical shadow of his former self.
