Former heavyweight champion and boxing legend Muhammad Ali is currently facing his biggest fight—the fight for his own life.
Several of his nine children have been rushed to his bedside. The 74-year-old Olympic gold medalist is under the care of a hospital in Scottsdale, Arizona.
He reportedly has developed a serious breathing condition, according to a Mirror report.
The report alleges his children have been told by doctors that the “end is near.”
The Mirror, citing doctors, say the future survival of the champ is uncertain.
Ali was diagnosed with Parkinson’s back in the ’80s and doctors say his respiratory has probably been complicated by the disease.
“His children are all extremely concerned and dropped everything to be with him. They fear the worse,” said the Mirror, citing a source.
His third wife, 60-year-old Veronica Porche, confirmed to the Mirror that his 38-year-old daughter Laila and 40-year-old daughter Hana were with him. His second wife, 66-year-old Khalilah, also confirmed that one of her daughters with the champ was on her way.
