Johannesburg: Legendary boxer Muhammad Ali , who has been suffering from Parkinson's disease, was hospitalised on Thursday due to a respiratory issue.
Reflecting on Ali's health, spokesperson Bob Gunnell informed that the 74-year-old boxer is in a 'fair condition' and that he is expected to have a brief stay in the hospital, Sport24 reported.
