PHOENIX, Arizona — Ring legend Muhammad Ali attended the opening Thursday of the newly expanded center to treat Parkinson’s disease that bears his name.

Officials at the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center said the facility is now the most comprehensive in the nation for the treatment of the illness that causes tremors, slowed movement and disrupted speech.

The former heavyweight world champion lives with his wife, Lonnie, in the Phoenix suburb of Paradise Valley.

He put one hand on a pair of giant scissors to help cut a red ribbon in an opening ceremony before taking a tour with his wife and sister-in-law.
