Muhammad Ali is remembered for his influence inside and outside of the boxing ring and for standing up for his principles in the face of fierce backlash.
穆罕默德•阿里在拳击台上台下展现出他十足的影响力;在面临突如其来的人生变故时,他也能坚定自己的信念;这一切都让人们铭记在心。

Known for his quick jab and a lightning-fast wit, Ali seemed to be able to adapt his skills to any situation, be it to get himself into trouble or right back out again.
阿里擅长快速猛击且反应敏捷,无论是在赛况危急时刻,还是在力挽狂澜之时,他似乎都能够凭借自己的技能在赛场上应对自如。

The boxing legend died on Friday night at 74, after a long battle with Parkinson's disease.

You'll hear a lot of crazy stories about him over the next few days. He performed magic tricks like a champion. He had Irish roots and family ties to Katie Couric. He released a spoken word album titled, "I am the greatest." But here are some of our favorites:
拳王去世后,这几天你可能会听说有关他的许多不可思议的故事。例如,他像冠军似的表演魔术;他有爱尔兰血统,与凯蒂•柯丽克是亲戚;他发行过音乐说唱专辑《我是最强者》等等。然而,下面将讲述人们最感兴趣的五个故事。

关于拳王阿里:你不曾听说的5件事儿

1. The NSA wiretapped Ali's phone
美国国家安全局曾监听过阿里的手机

Declassified documents revealed in 2013 that the National Security Agency tapped overseas communications of Vietnam War critics, including Martin Luther King Jr. and Ali, The Washington Post reported at the time.
据华盛顿邮报报道,2013年披露的美国政府解密文件显示,美国国家安全局曾监控反越战人士(包括马丁·路德·金和阿里)的海外通讯。

A brief of those government documents suggests that Ali was surveilled during his efforts to avoid the draft. During 1966 and 1967, the heavyweight boxer appealed his draft status, saying, "I can fight in wars declared only by Allah himself." He was sentenced to five years in prison, though the Supreme Court ruled in 1971 that he was entitled to conscientious objector status.
这些政府文件摘要表明,在阿里拒绝服兵役期间,国家安全局一直监控阿里。在1966和1967年期间,这名重量级拳击选手向法院申请不去服兵役,他说,“我只有在真主的召唤下才会应征入伍。”尽管最高法院于1971年裁定阿里为“因宗教信仰原因不肯服兵役者”,但在那之前,阿里依旧被判处五年有期徒刑。

2. He starred in a Broadway musical
他在百老汇音乐剧中担任主角

In 1969, during his suspension from boxing over his refusal to go to Vietnam, Ali was reportedly drowning in debt and still appealing his conviction. He made pocket change by touring colleges to discuss the war, and, as Playbill points out, he starred in the Broadway musical, "Buck White."
阿里因拒绝加入越南战争而被吊销了拳击执照。1969年,据说在被迫离开赛场的这段时间里,阿里债务缠身,但他仍然一直在为自己上诉。他在大学做巡回演讲,与学生们讨论战争问题,通过这种方式挣点儿小钱。人们从以前的百老汇海报中能看出,他还主演了音乐剧《巴克•怀特大时代》。
