Washington sources reported that the US city of Louisville in Kentucky State is set to rename its airport after hometown hero and boxing legend Muhammad Ali, who died in 2016. Meanwhile Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said that Ali had inspired billions of people around the world with his boxing accolades as well as his openness about his conversion to the Muslim faith.



Reportedly the announcement came just a day before Ali would have turned 77. Furthermore officials said they hope to finish the process of renaming the Louisville International Airport to the Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport by June, when the city hosts its "I Am Ali" festival in the boxer's honor. Fischer was quoted as saying by the Hill newspaper "Muhammad Ali belonged to the world, but he only had one hometown, and fortunately, that is our great city of Louisville".

Moreover airport officials were currently working on receiving approval from Ali's family for use of his name, but say an agreement was near.
