Boxing legend Muhammad Ali is in the hospital once again for what a spokesman says is follow-up care, but this stay is expected to be brief.
The former undisputed heavyweight champion, who turns 73 on Saturday, entered an undisclosed hospital on Thursday for treatment for a urinary tract infection which had required him to be hospitalized last month.
Spokesman Bob Gunnell said Ali is in stable condition. Gunnell said Ali is expected to be released from the hospital on Friday and spend his birthday on Saturday at home with his family.
Gunnell said the family requested privacy and that no further details about Ali's condition would be released.
