(MENAFN - Morocco World News) Muhammad Ali has been put on life support, Thursday, after being sent to the hospital suffering from a respiratory problem, according to Metro.
Regarded as the most legendary heavyweight boxer of all-time, Ali and his family have been told by Scottsdale, Arizona hospital doctors, that he is 'near the end'. During his initial entrance into the hospital, Ali seemed like to be in 'fair condition', but was later to transferred to intensive care. His daughters Laila, Hana and Maryum have accompanied him at the hospital. Ali’s respiratory problems seem to have worsened from Parkinson's disease, a disease that he had been diagnosed with in the 1980's. Doctors have been working to regulate his breathing, but the Parkinson's has been making it difficult. Ali’s children are worried, and have dropped everything to be by their father's side. Their father means so much to them, and they are afraid his problems are worse than they first feared. But, as a source said, 'Like in the ring, Ali is a fighter on the ward.'
