Muhammad Ali

"Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee."



As a mom, nothing can compare to the feeling that comes from empowering your kids to fight for their passions. Irma, 73, has found no greater pride than watching her son, Juan, soar in his boxing career, reminiscent of the admiration for Muhammad Ali they’ve long held close. As much as Irma champions Juan, he likewise wants the best for his mom and could not imagine better time spent with her than at the Muhammad Ali museum reflecting on the effect he had on their family, both professionally and personally.

“When you asked me what it would mean for my mom to go on this trip, I had to fight back tears. It would mean so much to my mom, she would be so happy.”
– Juan
