09/29/2015 05:16 PM

The Champ, Louisville’s own Muhammad Ali, finds himself in a familiar place this week. For the 39th time, Ali is on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

This week’s cover and feature article is about S.I. naming the legacy award after him.
It will now be called the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award and will be given out annually. Previously the honor was presented just twice, to Eunice Kennedy Shriver, who spearheaded the Special Olympics, and Businessman and former NBA All-Pro Magic Johnson.

The naming ceremony is Thursday night at the Muhammad Ali center.
