Muhammad Ali was admitted to a Phoenix hospital earlier today for respiratory issues. Sources close to the boxing legend say that this time it’s a bit more serious than all his other hospital runs.

Ali, 74, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in the 80’s and has been dealing with complications from the illness for a while.

The sources that shared this info said the family is extremely worried about Ali. They have actually declined to identify themselves because of the severity of the situation, according to The Associated Press.

The AP also adds: “A spokesman for Ali said in a statement earlier Thursday that the former heavyweight champion is being treated at an unidentified hospital for a respiratory issue. Spokesman Bob Gunnell said Ali was in fair condition, and a brief hospital stay was expected.

Earlier last year, the boxer had been hospitalized for a severe urinary tract infection, which was initially diagnosed as pneumonia.

We’ve seen Muhammad out in public several times since his last hospital visit and he’s looked pretty frail. He wore sunglassess and was hunchdd over at the annual Celebrity Fight Night dinner, which also took place in Phoenix. The dinner is a fundraiser for victims of Parkinson’s disease.

Ali has been battling Parkinson’s for over three decades now. Doctors say that the disease was more than likely caused by “thousands of punches” he endured during his boxing career.
Since the news broke about Ali, lots of celebrities and boxers have wished him well, including Sugar Ray Leonard.

Leonard took to social media saying:”Prayers & blessings to my idol, my friend, & without question, the Greatest of All Time @MuhammadAli ! #GOAT.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with Muhammad Ali and his family at this time.
