Ossington condo once home to an historic boxing gym

When Muhammad Ali fought was in town to fight Toronto's George Chuvalo at the Maple Leaf Gardens in 1966, he trained Earl Sullivan's Toronto Athletic Club at 109 Ossington Ave.

Now, Sully's is located at 1024 Dupont St., but it's original - and historic - location will be commemorated with a plaque, reports Inside Toronto today.

The plaque, which will focus on the late Ali's life and his time in Toronto, will go up at 109 Ossington. That site will soon be home to a new six-storey condo. As Inside Toronto writes, the Ossington-area community tried to stop this development from moving in, but the OMB allowed it to move forward.

The city and the condo developer will split the cost of the plaque.
