Last week we spoke with Arizona Republic Investigative Reporter Craig Harris, who wrote a story about the payout given to the founder of the charity Celebrity Fight Night, Jimmy Walker.

Earlier this week, Go Daddy founder Bob Parsons said he’d give the organization $1 million over a five-year period to cover Walker’s salary.

For more on this, we turn to Dr. Abraham Lieberman, director of the Muhammad Ali Parkinson’s Center at Barrow Neurological Institute, one of Celebrity Fight Night’s beneficiaries.
