Boxing legend Muhammad Ali is in fair condition after being hospitalized with a respiratory infection.
“Ali, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, is being treated by his team of doctors and is in fair condition,” family spokesman Bob Gunnell said in a statement. “A brief hospital stay is expected. At this time, the Muhammad Ali family respectfully requests privacy.”
Ali, 74, was hospitalized in January 2015 with a urinary tract infection.
This summer marks the 20-year anniversary of Ali’s famous Atlanta Olympic cauldron lighting.
Janet Evans, who passed the Olympic flame to the 1960 Olympic gold medalist Ali, reflected on that moment last year.
