London, Aug. 25 (ANI): Almost 46 years after his famous victory over Henry Cooper at Wembley, Muhammad Ali is set to go down memory lane during his upcoming tour to Britain.

Ali, 67, lands at Manchester airport on Tuesday to complete a short British tour that will include appearances at a series of dinners, The Times reports.

During a trip to a show jumping event on Friday evening, he will be reunited with Sir Henry Cooper in an open-top Land Rover tour of the Windsor arena.

It has been almost five decades since Cooper knocked Cassius Clay, as Ali then was, to the floor, in the fourth round of their Wembley bout.

What followed has gained a place in boxing folklore.

Recounting how he was floored by Cooper, Ali said that he was hit so hard his "ancestors in Africa felt it". (ANI)
