*Congrats to Jamillah Ali, the daughter of boxing legend Muhammad Ali. We’ve learned that she has married a Chicago lawyer who promotes young boxers in his spare time according to a report.
Jamillah, 39, recently married Michael Joyce, 42, at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Naples, Fla., the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
Muhammad Ali walked his daughter down the aisle before 140 friends and dozens of onlookers in a ceremony performed by the Rev. George Clements.
“Muhammad Ali sat throughout the whole reception and invited people to come up and take pictures with him,” an unidentified wedding source told the Sun-Times.
Jamillah, one of Ali’s nine children, works at the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office.
Joyce, the son of former Illinois state Sen. Jeremiah Joyce, is a lawyer and a former prize fighter known as “Irish Mike Joyce” who promotes young boxers through a club at Chicago’s Leo Catholic High School, said his brother, Kevin Joyce.
