An icon, a legend, and an inspiration, Muhammad Ali will go down in history as one of the greatest professional boxers of all time. While a boxing match is a place of noise and chaos, Ali preferred to prepare for his fights in a more tranquil environment, that is, this 81-acre Michigan compound he scooped up in 1975. His widow, Lonnie Ali, recently put the sprawling estate on the market.Located in quiet Berrien Springs, Michigan, the secluded property offers a mile of river frontage, a pool, and a waterfall rock garden. The multi-building compound isn’t all about relaxation, however, as it comes with an extensive fitness facility where Ali trained for matches and later used to stay fit in retirement.In the main house, there are only four bedrooms, but that's hardly indicative of the number of guests the compound can accommodate. Considering the boxer had nine children, that would not have sufficed for family visits. Multiple guesthouses with countryside views allow for easy entertaining and long weekends of playing host. Plus, since the property has so many acres left to utilize, a new owner could build an entire village if they wish.The residence is listed with Tim Mitchell of Cressy & Everett Real Estate
for $2,895,037. At first glance, that number seems odd, but it’s actually sentimental as TopTenRealEstateDeals.com
reports the 37 represents Ali’s 37 career knockouts.
