Muhammad Ali is Reportedly Very Sick, Says Brother

Boxing legend Muhammad Ali is so ill he could die within days, his brother has warned.

Rahman Ali said the former world heavyweight champion cannot speak and no longer recognises him.

He told The Sun: "My brother can't speak, he doesn't recognise me. He's in a bad way. He's very sick.

"It could be months, it could be days. I don't know if he'll last the summer. He's in God's hands. We hope he gently passes away.

"He told me before he got really bad that he's in no pain. He grabbed my arm and whispered 'Rah, I've achieved everything I've ever wanted to accomplish. Don't cry for me, I'm in no pain'.

"It's best he goes now. The longer he goes on, so does his suffering and misery."

Ali won gold at the 1960 Olympics and after turning professional went on to become a three-time world heavyweight champion.

The 71-year-old had several iconic fights during his career, including 1974's 'Rumble in the Jungle' with George Foreman and the 'Thrilla in Manila' against Joe Frazier the following year.

Ali was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 1984 but remained active for many years and memorably lit the Olympic flame in Atlanta in 1996.

According to Ali's daughter the champ is doing just fine. She said she spoke with him earlier today on the phone and that he was getting ready to watch the superbowl with his Ravens shirt on. She then tweeted this photo of Ali enjoying himself earlier today. http://resources0.news.com.au/imag...

[QUOTE=1PunchKOPOW!]Sounds cold but it's bound to happen. I think we all know he has fought enough and the inevitable is gonna happen.[/QUOTE] He's an old man and he's not well. I hope he gets through however long he has left as best as he can. The man is a boxing legend of the highest order a...
