Muhammad Ali Ailing Reports Not True? Boxer Has Super Bowl 2013 Party

Muhammad Ali Ailing Reports Not True? Boxer Has Super Bowl 2013 Party

The Muhammad Ali ailing reports might not be true. In fact, the famous boxer is reportedly having a Super Bowl 2013 party right now.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, reports of Muhammad Ali ailing started with Rahman Ali, brother of Muhammad Ali, announcing that his brother’s battle with Parkinson’s has taken a turn for the worse.

“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.”

In addition, Muhammad Ali’s wife of 26 years is allegedly limiting or denying him visitors. Muhammad Ali reportedly even picked out a Martin Luther King Jr. quote for his gravestone, “I tried to love somebody, I did try to feed the hungry.”

According to The Courier-Journal, the family of Muhammad Ali says the rumors of Muhammad Ali ailing are completely false. They countered the supposed near death of the boxing legend by posting on Twitter a photo of Muhammad Ali in a Ravens jersey getting ready to watch Super Bowl 2013 from their home in Phoenix.

Ali family spokesman Bob Gunnell told The Courier-Journal that Muhammad Ali is hardly ailing…in fact, he’s busy partying:

“He looks great. He’s having a Superbowl party.”

The Twitter post from the official user account @realALI_me shows Ali with his fists up and holding an inflated Ravens helmet balloon, followed by, “The Greatest is ready for the Super Bowl! Go @Ravens!”

I’m glad to see that reports of Muhammad Ali ailing are untrue. What do you think about the famous boxer being a Super Bowl 2013 Ravens fan?

    Cassius Clay was a coward who "got religion" to avoid the draft during our flap in SE Asia. This guy might have been a good boxer, but as a man, he was a wussy compared to those brave Americans who answered the call and served their country.

    Never let this be forgotten!

    Ali didn't try to love someone. He loved everyone. When he passes, the world, sadly, will not change direction, but it will have lost probably the best human being the world has or will ever know.

    it is a far better show of courage to really stand up for your beliefs, whether or not it the opposite of the popular stand at the time. We can look back now and see that the 'draft dodgers/conscientios objectors' had a voice that we should have listened to back then, i give thanks and bless those who did serve. i am saddened by the way our veterens are treated and mistreated to this very day, as for Ali , he suffered for his opinions. almost lost an entire career. he was held accountable, which is appropriate. as a man…it takes more than courage to be honest and stand up for what you believe, than it does to fllow the popular voice of the many.

    I grew-up knowing Muhammad Ali and I feel like one of the luckiest men in the world. He is a man that gave himself to all of us, Loving everyone and sharing a bit of him to all of us. The world is a much better place to have a man like him in it! We all you!

    Ali followed his conscience, which asked: Why should I kill Vietnamese people, they never did anything to me. If every American did that we could avoid these insane wars that the military starts to make the rich richer. I respect him for that; it takes more courage to go against the sheeple, than to simply follow the crowd. That decision cost him; but he follwed his inner self, which is the most honorable thing a man can do.

    Parkinson's is a tricky and complicated disease. I have a person in my family who was diagnosed 18 years ago. Dementia is prevalent, mobility is compromised. It's a long haul. People slow down considerably with this disease, but we all die when it's time, no sense in making it all sensational. I'm sure he has excellent care. God bless you Mohammad Ali!

    that's rite.screw him, he's a lying draft dodger, good riddin's, he claimed religion, can't fight evil, but if there's money he can fight……………

    Ali opposed the war like many of us did. He went to jail, lost his heavyweight title and millions of dollars. If he had gone into the Army like Elivis did, he would have just done promotional duties for the Army. Vietnam was a huge mistake. I lost classmates to that completely unnecessary war and some who when they came back were never the same. Thank God people stood up in masses against this war to bring it to an end. Makes me wonder what is wrong today with people not standing up to our country being continuely involved in foriegn wars. The only explanation I can come up with is there isn't a draft like there was then.

    I find it funny that no one brings up what ALI did to Joe Frazier. Frazier never forgave him for calling him an Uncle Tom and basically trying to turn all the black people in that era against him. Ali loved everybody once he got diagnose with Parkinson disease. RIP Frazier

    I MET MUHAMMAD ALI IN JERSEY CITY, WHEN CHUCK WEPNER FOUGHT SONNY LISTON AT THE AMORY, YOU COULD'NT FIND A NICER PERSON THEN HIM HE WAS A REAL GENTLEMEN, MAYBE YOU SHOULD LOOK INTO YOUR OWN FAMILY STEPHANIE CONNELLY AND SEE WHO DODGED THE THE DRAFT.

    From a U.S. Marine, 1967-1970, he give it his all. How he got there is just shallow prejudice, compared to what he became to so many.

  15. Paul G. DeCroix

    Loved Joe Frazor also! I was more of a Joe fan mostly because I felt the way Ali handled things, turning black people against Joe was wrong and reverse discrimination.

    Muhammed Ali is an interesting study in honesty for us all. I can't say honestly that I wouldn't have done the same thing he did if faced with a Vietnam draft card. He had status and a way to avoid what could have been a death sentence, who wouldn't have taken his way out? He did what he did and accepted the consequences, had he gone the other way, he might not be alive today.
