Muhammad Ali is in the fight of his life today in a hospital in Phoenix with serious respiratory issues. The 74-year-old former world heavyweight champion was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease 30 years ago and it is said to be complicating his condition.
The family of boxing great Muhammad Ali is rushing to his hospital bedside, RadarOnline.com has learned, as his condition remains dire.
Speaking exclusively to Radar from her home in Los Angeles, Ali’s third wife, actress Veronica Porche, 60, said that her daughters by the champ, Laila – a 38-year-old retired professional boxer — and Hana Yasmeen, 40, were en route to the hospital, where he was admitted Thursday with a respiratory issue.
“My daughters have both flown there and I will be hearing from them when they arrive at the hospital,” Porche, who was married to Ali from 1977 to 1986, said.
“I can’t comment more than that but I will say it is not so great, I’ll just say that much. He’s a real hero. It’s a sad situation.”
It’s a very sad situation. Here’s hoping for a quick recovery for The Champ!
