sending a letter to Iran’s supreme leader seeking the release of two American hikers, Muhammad Ali’s wife says the boxing champ is also willing to go there to help make it happen.
But Lonnie Ali says such a visit would depend on her husband’s health. Parkinson’s Disease has limited his speech and physical activity.
“If we thought that they would be released and if Muhammad’s presence would have some impact on that release for the good, then, yes, we would try very hard to make sure Muhammad was able to go,” Lonnie Ali said. “But a lot of that, as you know, would depend on Muhammad’s health. That’s the bottom line.”
