Boxing legend Muhammad Ali’s brother Rahman Ali says Muhammad Ali, 71, is so ill he could be dead within days.
According to The Sun Muhammad Ali may be gone before summer. But Rahman Ali said the disease is NOT the most devastating factor in Ali’s heartbreaking demise, it’s the Muhammad’s wife Lonnie. Lonnie the wife of 26 years, is tearing the family apart and said Ali would be “mad as hell” if he knew what was going on.
“It could be months, it could be days. I don’t know if he’ll last the summer. He’s in God’s hands. We hope he gently passes away.
“He told me before he got really bad that he’s in no pain. He grabbed my arm and whispered, ‘Rah, I’ve achieved everything I’ve ever wanted to accomplish. Don’t cry for me, I’m in no pain.’ It’s best he goes now. The longer he goes on, so does his suffering and misery.
“He’s going to heaven, there’s no doubt. If his funeral was tomorrow, all the statesmen of the world would turn up. He touched everyone from the rich to the poor.
“I love my brother over anybody. Of all the famous people who ever lived, he’s the best. Everyone knows Muhammad Ali. He’s up there with Jesus Christ.
“I cry because it hurts me, it breaks my heart. I hope to see him again alive, but I can only hope.”
The 71-year-old Ali suffers from Parkinson’s disease but is thankfully not critically ill. This photo released by his spokesman Bob Gunnell shows Ali dressed in Raven’s gear rooting for the now Super Bowl champions.
