Muhammad Ali Reportedly Placed On Life Support As Condition Worsens

Muhammad Ali continues to fight, but the legendary boxer reportedly isn’t doing well.

Ali, who also suffers from Parkinson’s disease, was hospitalized Thursday with a respiratory infection. A spokesman said at the time that Ali’s hospital stay was expected to be “brief,” but an insider told Radar Online on Friday that the 74-year-old’s vitals were “terrible” and that he still is relying on medical help to breathe properly.

“Doctors are telling the family that it likely won’t be long until he passes away,” another insider told Radar Online, adding that the former boxing champ was “barely breathing” Thursday when he was discovered at his home.
