LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — In addition to sending a letter to Iran's supreme leader seeking the release of two American hikers, Muhammad Ali's wife says the boxing champ is 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.
Arguably the most prominent U.S. Muslim, Muhammad Ali made a behind-the scenes appeal to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in February and released his letter to The Associated Press on Wednesday.
A third hiker, Sarah Shourd, was released on bail in September.
