Muhammad Ali Hospitalized For Pneumonia After He 'Stopped Breathing'

Filed under: HealthMental HealthMuhammad AliScary!GIFs

no title

Oh no!!!

It's being reported that boxer Muhammad Ali "stopped breathing" on Friday night and was hospitalized on Saturday with pneumonia. A source said:

"[Family members] called 911. He was revived by the paramedics and is in ICU with fluid on the lungs. He is on a respirator and IV's."

Ali's daughters Laila and Hana rushed to Phoenix, Arizona to be with their father, who is now in stable condition, but because of his battle with Parkinson's disease, every hospital visit is a scary one. His 73rd birthday is on January 17th.

A friend recently explained that the boxing legend's health has been "rapidly declining" this last year, and that he can no longer speak. Reportedly, Ali's wife Lonnie will give an update on his health soon.

We're wishing the champ a speedy recovery!

Former Heavyweight Boxing Champ Ken Norton Dies At 70

ken norton former heavyweight boxing champ dies at 70

The world of boxing has lost one of the greats today, as former heavyweight champ Ken Norton has died at the age of 70.

The former boxer had been struggling with his health over the past several years after her suffered a series of strokes, and his son says he passed away in Las Vegas yesterday.

Ken's career began in the U.S. Marine Corps where he was a 3-time heavyweight champ in the '60s.

He then went on to have a notable professional career and was well known for three classic fights against fellow boxing legend Muhammad Ali.

In their first match-up, Ken achieved the impossibly by not only beating Ali, but by also shutting up his notoriously big mouth by breaking his jaw!

In 1978, he was awarded the WBC Heavyweight title.

Our thoughts go out to Norton's family and the boxing community at this incredibly difficult time.

Muhammad Ali National Constitution Centers 2012 Liberty Medal

The National Constitution Center's 2012 Liberty Medal is a super special honor — and we're happy to report that this year's recipient is none other than the legend himself, Muhammad Ali!

He was presented the award from Terrance Howard, and his daughter, Laila Ali.

It was a big honor regardless, but it was also the U.S. Constitution's 225th Anniversary, held at the National Constitution Center — so it was amplified in excitement a bit!

Congrats, Muhammad!

Muhammad Ali's Childhood Home SOLD!

Filed under: Business BlitzBoxingMuhammad Ali

We previously mentioned that Muhammad Ali's childhood home was up for sale.

The owner was asking for $50,000, twice the home's actual value.

Well it's finally sold… for $70,000!!

The actual house is only worth about $23,000.

It was bought by a Las Vegas real estate investor who is a huuuuge fan of Ali.

The new owner plans to restore the home to how it looked when Ali was a child.

We wonder if they're going to make it like a little museum, or if they actually plan to live there at any point.

Either way, congrats on scoring your idol's old house!
