On Thursday, the fighting champ was hospitalized due to the issues. While a spokesman initially said in a statement that the acclaimed athlete was in fair condition and wouldn't be staying in the medical facility for very long, his ailment was reportedly complicated by his Parkinson's disease.

On Thursday, the boxing legend was checked in to a Phoenix-area hospital after suffering from respiratory issues. And while the 74-year-old's rep had said he was alright and wouldn't be in the medical facility for very long, it appears the ailing athlete isn't actually doing that well.

According to NBC News, a well-informed source says the former heavyweight champ is in "grave condition." Earlier, insiders had also said that the fighter's longterm battle with Parkinson's disease is complicating his condition.

We're really hoping Muhammad Ali pulls through.

While we previously reported Ali's recent hospitalization for a respiratory issue wasn't so serious, apparently that's NOT the case. Now sources close to the champ claim his condition is worsening due to his Parkinson's Disease, an issue he has struggled with since the 1980s.

Even though we don't have any official word from the icon's family, the Associated Press claims M.A.'s current state is incredibly frightening for his family members — and that this stay is way worse than his previous hospitalizations.
