ASHTABULA, Ohio, Oct. 1 (UPI) -- Chub Road in Windsor Township, Ohio, will not be renamed after the late wife of boxing promoter Don King, a resident of the street, township trustees said.

King, 82, requested the street name be changed to Henrietta King Street in honor of his wife, who died in 2010 at age 87.

Ashtabula County commissioners left the decision to township trustees, who circulated letters to the nine residents of the street, stating a unanimous agreement was required to change the name, the Ashtabula Star Beacon reported Tuesday.

Only six of the nine residents agreed to the name change.
