Boxing under his birth name, Eddie Gregory, Muhammad won two New York Golden Gloves Championships. Gregory won both the 1971 and the 1972 New York Golden Gloves 147 lb Open Championships. Gregory defeated future middleweight champion Vito Antuofermo in the 1971 finals and in 1972 defeated Patrick Maloney of the Leatherpushers Athletic Club to win the Championship. Gregory trained at the Police Athletic Leagues Howard Houses in Brooklyn, New York.Known as "Flame", Muhammad turned pro in 1972 and in 1977 challenged WBA Light Heavyweight Title holder Víctor Galíndez but lost a unanimous decision. He got a second shot at the title against Marvin Johnson in 1980, and won via an 11th-round TKO to take the belt. He defended the belt twice in 1980 and lost a non-title bout against Renaldo Snipes in 1981. Later in 1981 he would lose his title as well in a defense against Michael Spinks via unanimous decision.
