Family of Muhammed Ali Dispute UK Reports of Ill Health

The family of Muhammad Ali on Sunday countered British news reports of the near death of the boxing legend by posting on Twitter a photo of The Champ in a Ravens jersey getting ready to watch the Super Bowl.

Muhammad Ali and his wife, Lonnie, were at home in Phoenix watching the game, said family spokesman Bob Gunnell, who returned a call to Lonnie Ali from The Courier-Journal.

"He looks great," Gunnell said. "He's having a Super Bowl party."

Gunnell said the report of Ali's pending death, published over the weekend by both The Sun and The Daily Mail newspapers, was false. It was based largely on an interview with Ali's brother, Rahman Ali, who was quoted as saying, "It could be months, it could be days. I don't know if he'll last the summer. He's in God's hands."
