The champ is facing a battle for his life. According to reports, Muhammad Ali‘s health is slowly declining.

Gene Kilroy, the boxer’s former manager, revealed that Ali has become ‘a prisoner in his own body’ in an interview with NY Daily News.

It’s been an uphill battle for the boxing legend since he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in the 80s.

Kilroy continued by saying, ‘He can just about walk and his speech is slurred. It takes huge effort for him to make the simplest communication now, but when he does, every word is worthwhile. But even now he has no fear. He says, ‘I’ll stay here as long as God wants me to. When my time comes I’ll have no regrets. I have achieved a lot.’’

It is clear that the world champion’s mind and faith is still sharp, even as his body ages.
