Take a look at the gym where Muhammad Ali first trained


WE WENT LOOKING FOR THE GYM WHERE HE FIRST TRAINED. BEFORE HE BECAME MUHAMMAD ALI HE WAS A YOUNG CASSIUS CLAY.>>HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THE PERSON THAT STOL HIS BIKE AND THIS IS WHERE IT ALL STARTED.>>HE BEGAN HIS RUN TOWARDS GREATNES IN DOWNTOWN LOUISVILLE.>>JUST IMAGINE A DARK OLD JIM AND THIS IS WHERE IT ALL BEGAN FOR HIM. .>>BEHIND THESE STORES IS WHERE CASSIU CLAY MADE HIS NAME. THEY CAME HERE TO THIS LOCATION AT COLUMBIA G .>>WALKING IN AS A 12-YEAR-OLD KID, IT WAS GROWN MAN AND I CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW INTIMIDATING IT WOULD BE. FOR THE FIRST TIME GETTING YOUR HANDS TAPED AN HITTING THE HEAVY BAGS. I CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE FOR A YOUNG KI BY HIM TO COME INTO THIS ENVIRONMENT.>>CLA WOULD TURN FROM A SKINNY BOY TO A 215 MAN. NOW SITS THE SPALDING UNIVERSITY CENTER AND IT WILL ALWAYS HAVE A REMINDER OF WHERE THE GREATNESS STARTED.>>YOU GET TO GO TO WORK EVERY DAY AND WALKED DOWN THE HALLWAY THAT MUHAMMAD ALI WALKED DOWN. IT IS JUST AN AMAZING THING.
