Members of the The Jacksons join forces and pin Muhammad Ali down in the ring

He may be one of the greatest boxers in history, but in this case, Muhammad Ali was no match for a bunch of young singers!

If Muhammad Ali was able to take on all members of The Beatles without a hitch, it seems quite the opposite happened the day he came face-to-face with another musical sensation, The Jacksons! Our research yielded only one instance of the brothers meeting with Ali, which was in 1977, so we’re guessing this shot was taken at that time. That year saw Ali interviewing the Jackson Five and, in a separate instance, the boxer making a guest appearance on the group’s own television program.

Here’s a video clip of Michael Jackson showing off his moves to Ali! Meanwhile, you may watch Ali’s interview with The Jacksons here and here.
