Boxing legend Muhammad Ali, who has suffered from Parkinson's Disease for three decades, was in stable condition after being hospitalized with a "mild" case of pneumonia, his spokesman said late Saturday. The 72-year-old Ali was admitted Saturday and is not expected to remain in the hospital long, Bob Gunnell said. "He was admitted earlier this morning and because the pneumonia was caught early, his prognosis is good with a short hospital stay expected," Gunnell said. Ali's doctor Abraham Lieberman warned in November that Parkinson's can be deadly because it makes sufferers susceptible to falling or if people with the disease have trouble swallowing and then develop pneumonia.
