"Muhammad Ali" is a song recorded by British dance band Faithless. It was released in the UK as a single on 23 September 2001, and was the second single release from the group's third studio album Outrospective. The German release was a DualDisc containing a CD audio side and a DVD side. Muhammad Ali reached #29 in the UK singles chart.

The single is about one of Maxi Jazz's heroes and major influences Muhammad Ali, who inspired Maxi to believe in himself and rise above racial taunts when he was younger.

One of the single covers contains a section of a picture from the Ali vs. Liston fight after Ali had knocked Liston to the floor.
