Of course, they are all big fans of Ali. Their coach Marat Seimagambetov, who spoke using a translator, said being in Louisville brought something a little more special to the trip.

“Being here in the city where he was born and raised, being able to breathe in the same air, that he has been breathing is a totally different feeling that we really, really appreciate,” he said.

The team will be in the Bluegrass until Friday.
