Boxing legend Muhammad Ali ‘could be dead in days’, warns his distraught brother, reports the DailyMail! This may be more a case of Ali’s brother trying to use a little drama to get a personal meeting with the boxing legend, but these days, you never know!
The Greatest: Muhammad Ali may not last the summer, according to brother Rahman Legendary boxer Muhammad Ali is so ill he could be dead within days, his brother has warned.
Rahman Ali said the former heavyweight champion cannot speak and no longer recognises him.
Rahman fears his 71-year-old brother – known as The Greatest – may not survive the summer.
He told The Sun: ‘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.’
Rahman has accused his sister-in-law, who has been married to Ali for 26 years, of refusing to let the family visit the ailing champion.
Rahman, who was also a professional boxer, said he last saw his brother in July at the Sports for Peace Gala in London and is only allowed to speak to him over the phone.
Ali’s most recent public health scare was December, 2011, when the champion was taken to hospital after falling unconscious.
I hope this is just one of those power struggles that happen within families! Come on champ!
