Five years after buying their Louisville estate, Ali and wife Yolanda are exhausted with repairs.

Boxing icon Muhammad Ali is taking his latest fight to the courtroom, filing a lawsuit against the former owners of his Kentucky home.

The 69-year-old and wife Yolanda purchased the Louisville estate in 2006 and have since struggled with mold, leaks and defective decking, according to TMZ.

The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, alleges that the sellers, a married couple, were aware of the problems when they put on the home on the market.

Ali has been retired from boxing for 30 years. He's devoted much of his time since to philanthropy, including advocating his personal struggle with Parkinson's Disease advocacy.
