LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The childhood home of boxing great Muhammad Ali is up for sale.

Owner Steve Stephenson said Monday he’s asking $50,000 for the small white house with a sagging front porch. It’s located in a western Louisville neighborhood of neat, modest homes.

The sign in front of the house says it is for sale by owner. Stephenson declined to provide further details.

In front of the home is a state historical marker recognizing the residence as Ali’s home when he was a boy, when he was known as Cassius Clay.

Ali grew up in Louisville. His museum and education center, the Muhammad Ali Center, is one of the city’s prime tourist attractions.
