You will have the opportunity to get yourself into the boxing ring and learn about Muhammad Ali’s work ethic and revolutionary boxing techniques.

The tribute will also take you behind the scenes to the time when Muhammad refused to join the American military to fight in the Vietnam war and the consequences following his decision on his career as a boxer. You will see how he came about his decision to convert religion and his fascinating interactions with some of the world’s most powerful and influential leaders including Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and even Saddam Hussein and Leonid Brezhnev during the height of the Cold War.

Exhibition artefacts, which originally belonged to Muhammad Ali, will include:
