At 22, he won the world heavyweight championship from Sonny Liston in an upset in 1964. Shortly after that, Clay converted to Islam, changed his "slave" name to Ali, and gave a message of racial pride for African Americans and resistance to white domination during the 1960s Civil Rights Movement. In 1966, two years after winning the heavyweight title, Ali further antagonized the white establishment by refusing to be conscripted into the U.S. military, citing his religious beliefs and opposition to American involvement in the Vietnam War. He was eventually arrested, found guilty of draft evasion charges and stripped of his boxing titles. Ali remains the only three-time lineal world heavyweight champion; he won the title in 1964, 1974, and 1978. Between February 25, 1964, and September 19, 1964, Ali reigned as the heavyweight boxing champion. Nicknamed "The Greatest",

Commando Utopia - Sabotage art
When contemporary provocative artist couple Thomas Dellert –Dellacroix and Agnieszka Dellert-Dellfina attacks the world of art they do it under the ironic name of “COMMANDO UTOPIA” They are armed with weapons of Mass Construction and they embark on a anarchistic and pacifistic campaign of sabotage art, in a way that only intellectual terrorist can do. They do it with colors and music, poetry and ironic statements and always with a smile and a paint ball gun for fun in hand. They attack what they feel is boring, to one dimensional, to stagmatic, and much to pretentious. And at the same time they display themselves as targets for mass medial bullets. Their “ Artistic Manifesto “ is as much a matrix for their thoughts as well as for their actions. They see themselves as anti heroes , armed with a Bar of lethal Molotov cocktails made of equal doses, Fun, Fame and Fortune. They sharpen their pens, reload their arsenal of virtual missiles, and study carefully their invasion maps. Commando Utopia is a ART-Error organization with a contract to bring back the danger in art and to blow up the dictatorship of the art market. If you’re a gallerist out there, be prepared to be the next target.
