Plumber knocks on Muhammad Ali’s door, gets to wish ‘The Greatest’ a happy birthday in person Published: January 23, 2014

When plumber Tony Kelly went to work on Friday, not in his wildest dreams did the 24-year-old Irishman believe he'd get an opportunity to meet the legendary heavyweight champion, Muhammad Ali, according to Yahoo Sports.

But having the courage to knock on a door led to that opportunity for Kelly.

The Irish Independent has a wonderful account of Kelly's surprise audience with Ali, who on Friday celebrated his 72nd birthday.
