NYC street temporarily named "Muhammad Ali Way"

Posted: Updated:

New York City is temporarily renaming a street outside of Madison Square Garden in honor of boxing legend, Muhammad Ali.

City workers hung a small green sign reading "Muhammad Ali Way." New York City's mayor says Ali never backed down from a fight in or out of the ring.

Ali fought eight times at the Garden. The most famous fight was the so-called "Fight of the Century" against Joe Frazier in 1971.

Ali passed away on Friday.
