Muhammad’s 70th

Muhammad Ali turned 70 on Tuesday, but the celebration took place over the weekend.
On Sunday, friends and family gathered at the first of five scheduled parties that are taking place in the next couple months. This party was also a fundraiser for the Ali Center, a cultural and educational center in Louisville, Ali’s hometown.
Guests  included boxing great Lennox Lewis, trainer Angelo Dundee and the three U.S. hikers that were imprisoned in Iran and recently released. Ali was one of the people lobbying for their release and is a prominent Muslim.
“He’s glad he’s here to turn 70, but he wants to be reassured he doesn’t look 70,” his wife Lonnie said.
