Celebs throw weight behind Muhammad's annual fundraiser

Monday March 30, 2009

Hollywood beauty Bo Derek was among the famous faces lending their support to boxing legend Muhammad Ali's yearly charity event in Phoenix, Arizona. As VIP guests - including Oscar winner Forest Whitaker - looked on, record-breaking Olympic gold medallist Michael Phelps was presented with a gong at the boxing legend's Fight Night Awards.  
The ceremony, proceeds from which go to research into Parkinson's disease and other incurable illnesses, honours leaders in the sports, entertainment and business worlds. The bash has raised more than $52 million in the last 14 years.  
Providing the entertainment on the night were US rocker Jon Bon Jovi and R'n'B beauty Jordin Sparks.
