A-list celebrities attend Muhammad Ali's Vegas gala
Some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment, including David Beckham and Stevie Wonder, attended a lavish gala to celebrate Muhammad Ali's 70th birthday.
Ali, who is one of the world's most recognizable sportsman, turned 70 last month in his home state of Kentucky where he had another celebration.
Saturday's gala and $1,500-a-plate fundraiser was held in the US boxing and gambling mecca of Las Vegas where Ali won seven prizefights.
Beckham, Wonder and actor Samuel L. Jackson and football player Jim Brown were among the 2,000 guests in attendance who showed their appreciating and admiration for Ali and his legacy at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino.
The former three-time world heavyweight champ now suffers from Parkinson's disease which doctors have said could be a result of his boxing career.
