Muhammad Ali National Constitution Centers 2012 Liberty Medal

The National Constitution Center's 2012 Liberty Medal is a super special honor — and we're happy to report that this year's recipient is none other than the legend himself, Muhammad Ali!

He was presented the award from Terrance Howard, and his daughter, Laila Ali.

It was a big honor regardless, but it was also the U.S. Constitution's 225th Anniversary, held at the National Constitution Center — so it was amplified in excitement a bit!

Congrats, Muhammad!

Muhammad Ali's Childhood Home SOLD!

| Filed under: Business BlitzBoxingMuhammad Ali

We previously mentioned that Muhammad Ali's childhood home was up for sale.

The owner was asking for $50,000, twice the home's actual value.

Well it's finally sold… for $70,000!!

The actual house is only worth about $23,000.

It was bought by a Las Vegas real estate investor who is a huuuuge fan of Ali.

The new owner plans to restore the home to how it looked when Ali was a child.

We wonder if they're going to make it like a little museum, or if they actually plan to live there at any point.

Either way, congrats on scoring your idol's old house!

Muhammad Ali's Childhood Home For Sale

| Filed under: BoxingMuhammad Ali

Muhammad Ali first began boxing as a young boy, living in a very small home in Louisville, Kentucky.

The tiny, one story home is now in a state of disrepair, worth only about $23,000.

The owner is trying to sell it for $50,000, riding off its historic value.

While living at the house, at age 12 his bike was stolen. He decided to take up boxing because he wanted to find and beat up the thief.

That was just the humble beginning of the greatest boxer in the history of time.

Check out the video (above) to see his actual old house!
