Muhammad Ali’s daughter visits Fighter’s Heaven in Deer Lake

DEER LAKE, SCHUYLKILL COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — The late, great Muhammed Ali’s eldest daughter visited Fighter’s Heaven in Deer Lake, Schuylkill County, in honor of her dad.

Fighter’s Heaven was in an uproar as Ali’s eldest daughter, Maryum “May” May” Ali, participated in the Parkinson Unity Walk, but before heading home she visited her father’s restored Deer Lake Training Camp.

Officials say May May spent a lot of time at the training camp as a child during her father’s training camps but hasn’t been back since she was there with her father as a teenager in the early 80s.
