Muhammad Ali, AKA Cassius Clay, The Greatest, The Champ, The Louisville Lip will be honored in the Bronx tomorrow night. The Yankees will pay tribute to the three-time world heavyweight champion and 1960 Olympic gold medalist before tomorrow’s Yankee-Red Sox game.

One of the finest moments of his career was when he defeated Ken Norton in a 15-round decision to retain the heavyweight title at Yankee Stadium on Sept. 28, 1976.

Ali will be in attendance, along with Joseph Cinque, president of the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences, to present Yankee Stadium and Yankees managing general partner/co-chairperson Hal Steinbrenner with the academy’s “Six Star Diamond Award”. The award is given for excellence in hospitality.
