Peter Andre to serenade Muhammad Ali on boxer's UK tour

Wednesday August 26, 2009

Peter Andre is due to pay a personal tribute to boxing legend Muhammad Ali with a medley of his own songs.

The estranged husband of Katie Price will perform at an event to celebrate the sportsman's achievements at a Stoke City Football Club lunch this week.

Pete had originally accepted an invitation to attend the lunch as a guest, but, organisers offered him the chance to sing.

Muhammad Ali - who suffers from Parkinson's disease - is visiting the football ground as part of his two-week fundraising tour of England.

Accompanied by his wife Lonnie, the 69-year-old began his trip at an equestrain event in Windsor on Tuesday.

He will appear at dinners in his honour in Manchester, Stoke-on-Trent, London and also Dublin in the next fortnight.

"The UK is very close to my heart," says Muhammad, who is raising money for the charities he supports.

"I want to visit again not only to raise awareness and funds for the Muhammad Ali Centre, but also to revisit such a wonderful country and to all my friends and fans here."
