MUHAMMAD ALI
Calling himself a conscientious objector, Ali refused to enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces for the Vietnam War in 1966. Ali went before a trial in 1967 and was found guilty. In 1971, the conviction was overturned, and Ali would return to the ring to have the most illustrious boxing career in history.
