9. Muhammad Ali vs Earnie Shavers, 1977
Meco – Star Wars Theme
There have been plenty of fitting and emotional tributes to The Greatest in the sombre wake of his passing. One of the many things he brought to the sport that has not been given due credit, though, is the fact he was the first to really use entrance music back in 1977. The track he used was the Stars Wars Theme, which with its stirring chords and implicit sense of victory-against-the odds was a perfect choice for this truly otherworldly talent.
