      CENTER TO INCLUDE STORY OF ALI'S LIFE
      Associated Press, 12/27/02

      LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A two-floor exhibit at the Muhammad Ali
      Center will tell the story of the Louisville native's life, from
      childhood to heavyweight boxing champion to international
      humanitarian.

      "At each stop, you'll be able to learn something about Muhammad and
      also about yourself," said Mike Fox, president of the center, which
      is expected to open in downtown Louisville in late 2004.

      The preliminary design of the journey line, titled "Lighting the
      Way," will have six "portals," each spotlighting an Ali trait chosen
      by the team designing the exhibits: giving, confidence, dedication,
      spiritual centering, respect for others and convictionÂ…

      Near the end of the journey, visitors will learn how Ali has dealt
      with Parkinson's disease, along with seeing the torch he used to
      light the flame at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.

      The Muhammad Ali Center will have about 93,000 square feet on six
      levels. The Ali Center's construction budget is $41 million. About
      $34 million has been raised or pledged.
