PHOENIX -- If you're looking find out more about your Irish heritage there are plenty of resources at the McClelland Irish Library in Phoenix.  And if  you're a boxing fan, you may want to check out their new  boxing exhibit "Fighting Irishmen."

It takes a look at amateur and professional boxer over the last 200 years. There's an array of robes, globes, boxing bags, pictures, and film footage of Celtic-prize boxers. The exhibit also features Muhammad Ali.

"Ali has a great grandfather who comes from our sister city Ennis, Ireland," said Chas Moore, head librarian.

The exhibit runs through May.
