CHICAGO (AP) – The daughter of boxing great Muhammad Ali is joining the fight against gang and gun violence in Chicago.
Rasheda Ali-Walsh announced a charity boxing exhibition that will raise money for youth programs and scholarships Monday at a workout at the Celtic Boxing Club on Chicago’s South Side. The exhibition is scheduled for Thursday.
Ali-Walsh’s cousin was shot and killed in Chicago in 1997.
In a statement, she says: “We all need to do more to put a stop to the violence and to show our young people that there is a peaceful and productive way out.”
