The New York Post’s Page Six reports:
Muhammad Ali fought one of his toughest battles in a Miami old-age home. In his upcoming book, “The Fight of the Century,” Michael Arkush reveals that as Ali trained for his legendary 1971 fight against Joe Frazier, his handlers inexplicably moved him into an upscale Jewish retirement home called Octagon Towers. “The Jews, at first, were scared [bleep]less of Ali’s group. They didn’t realize they were boxers, not gangsters,” Ali’s physician Ferdie Pacheco tells the author. But Ali worked very hard to change that and the residents later gave him a farewell party.
