Muhammad Ali Hospitalized After Being Found ‘Unresponsive In His Bed’
Muhammad Ali has been admitted to hospital for the second time in four weeks after he was found in an unresponsive state by guests staying at his Scottsdale, Arizona home.
The former champion boxer needed follow-up care related to the severe urinary tract infection he was hospitalized with on December 20.
He’s in a stable condition, Ali family spokesman Bob Gunnell said. “There were still issues with the urinary tract infection,” Gunnell said of Ali’s latest hospitalization.
‘They thought he might be too exhausted,’ added the source.
The three-time world heavyweight champion was released from a hospital on January 6, and headed home to celebrate his 73rd birthday on January 17 with his family and friends.
‘My daddy is a strong man. He’s so resilient and we’re all very grateful and blessed,’ daughter Rasheda Ali-Walsh said earlier this week.
Ali, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, was diagnosed with the brain disease about three years after he retired from boxing in 1981.
Ali’s public appearances have diminished in recent years as he continues to battle Parkinson’s disease, but he still enjoys getting out and watching sports and visiting friends.
