Muhammad Ali Has Pneumonia
Reps for Muhammad Ali have confirmed that the boxing legend is currently in the hospital with pneumonia.
Famed boxer Muhammad Ali was admitted to an undisclosed hospital Saturday with pneumonia, his spokesman Bob Gunnell said.
Ali’s treatment prognosis is good, he said.
“Ali, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, is being treated by his team of doctors and is in stable condition,” Gunnell said in a statement.
“At this time, the Muhammad Ali family respectfully requests privacy,” the statement said.
Ali was born Cassius Clay and won an Olympic gold medal as a light-heavyweight at age 18.
In 1964, he became world heavyweight champion in an upset victory against then champion Sonny Liston, according to Ali’s official website.
Luckily he’s in stable condition. Here’s to hoping the boxing champ recovers fully!
