Boxing legend Muhammad Ali can easily be considered one of the greatest boxers of all time, sadly the former boxer’s family confirms Ali has been hospitalized as a result of a mild case of pneumonia.
Muhammad Ali was hospitalized on Saturday with a mild case of pneumonia, according to NBC News. His prognosis is considered good, as WDRB in Louisville, Ky., reports Ali is in stable condition.
Ali, 72, is widely considered the greatest fighter in boxing history. In 61 fights, he finished 56-5 with 37 knockouts. Ali also won the heavyweight crown three times, the first boxer to do so. Born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr., he changed his name to Muhammad Ali after joining the Nation of Islam.
We’re keeping Ali in our prayers and hoping he pulls through.
I’ll keep him in my prayers. It’s the holidays and it would be sad for him to leave now.
Aww man. I hope he gets better soon.
I’ve always had the greatest respect for him. He’s a champ in more ways than one and a true class act. Sending positive thoughts his way.
I know his family is worried. May God heal him and send him back home in time for Christmas.
Oh no! Hope he pulls through.
