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!”
