A lawyer says the son of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali was detained by immigration officials at a Florida of the United States airport.
The boxing icon who inspired many champions, in sports and life, Muhammad Ali is widely regarded as one of the most significant and renowned sports figures of the 20th century.
A bustling shopping mall forms an unlikely monument to the "Thrilla in Manila", but Muhammad Ali's most brutal fight made its biggest impression on the minds of those who witnessed it and still speak of it with awe.
