RIP Muhammad Ali (#ThrowbackThursday to July 7, 2006)

In case you have not heard, Muhammad Ali passed away at the age of 74. Being one of the greatest athletes of all time, and a person who transcended sports, it should come as absolutely no surprise that he has been the subject of multiple Jeopardy! categories.

One of those categories ran on July 7, 2006. If you click on each clue, it will show the respective correct response.
