The spokesperson for Muhammad Ali confirmed to TMZ Sports on Thursday that the boxing legend has been hospitalized for a respiratory issue. The good news is Ali is being described as in “fair condition.”

“Ali, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, is being treated by his team of doctors and is in fair condition,” family spokesman Bob Gunnell said in a statement.  “A brief hospital stay is expected. At this time, the Muhammad Ali family respectfully requests privacy.”

Ali was previously hospitalized back in 2014 due to complications with pneumonia.
