Ali's medical state has been a matter of speculations since he was diagnosed with Parkinson's syndrome in 1984
The 72 year-old, Ali who has been on and off medical attention has been suffering from Parkinson’s Syndrome for over thirty years.
He has been rumoured to be close to death in recent times with his brother and son saying that the ‘rumble in the jungle’ legend may not live beyond the year.
His latest case of pneumonia is not a scare for now as his spokesman, Mr Gunnel said.
"The prognosis is good," Mr Gunnell said, stating that he is in a stable condition and would likely leave the hospital soon enough.
The spokesman also asked the media to respect the privacy of the family who do not wish to make the matter more public than it already is.
