ALI FAN: If you're mad, 'go in the boxing ring like Muhammad Ali!'

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- There are a lot of angry people in the world -- angry for various reasons. Some are mad because of their circumstances, their treatment, or just because they like being mad.

But one Muhammad Ali fan has some advice for them.

"Instead of being so mad and everything, go in the boxing ring like Muhammad Ali," said Doris Beala. "If you’re  mad, just go in there and start boxing." 

Beala made the comments as she was sitting at The Belvedere, waiting to watch the Muhammad Ali memorial service on a big screen, set up by the city. Although the temperature was high, Beala braved the hit summer sun to show her support for the boxing champ -- a man she called a "role model."

"He's done a lot of things," Beala said. "He's helped a lot of people. He's given away money and he's given himself to people, so this is the most important thing."

A few dozen people were already at The Belvedere at 2 p.m. We're told the Louisville Water Company will be giving out free water at the event.
