The New York Post reports that boxing legend Muhammad Ali was hospitalized five days after attending Joe Frazier’s funeral last month.

The 69-year-old was found unconscious by his wife at their home near Phoenix, Arizona.  He was rushed to the hospital before paramedics could reach the home.

There are no details on how long Ali spent in the hospital.  However, reports say that he spent the Thanksgiving holiday with his family in Las Vegas. Ali, who suffers from Parkinson’s syndrome, is considered one of the greatest boxers of all-time.  He is also highly respected for his involvement in the civil rights movement and other forms of social activism.
