Boxing legend Muhammad Ali is currently touring the UK to raise money for charity.
The 67-year-old Parkinson’s Disease sufferer will raise awareness and money for the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. The center was established by the boxer to provide excellence in treatment, research, and education for patients and families affected by Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders regardless of ability to pay.
Ali will be honored at dinners and special events in London, Dublin, Manchester and Stoke-on-Trent.
“I think Muhammad Ali overcomes obstacles and I think one of the things Muhammad is about is that he sees there is still more work to be done especially around children living in poverty and still suffering,” center manager Greg Roberts told Sky Sports News UK. "Even today as he fights Parkinson’s he’s a champion, he’s a fighter of that disease. "
