Owners of Ali's boyhood home warn of possible closing

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - wavemaster xxl compare prices - https://kickboxingtraininggear.com/product/century-wavemaster-xxl-with-s... The owners who restored Muhammad Ali's boyhood home in Kentucky and opened it as a museum say it may have to close because of financial difficulties.

The pink home where Ali - known then as Cassius Clay - dreamed of boxing greatness has drawn more than 10,000 visitors since opening last year in Louisville.

Co-owners George Bochetto and Jared Weiss said Tuesday they have asked the city of Louisville and the Ali Center to help support the landmark.

Bochetto says they have covered - http://venturebeat.com/?s=covered the costs to renovate the home and keep it open as a museum. They say a more comprehensive financial and marketing plan is needed.

The first anniversary of Ali's death is Saturday.

Louisville will honor its hometown champ with a six-week celebration that begins Saturday.
