Boxer Leon Spinks, who rose to fame after beating Muhammad Ali over forty years ago, is hospitalized and reportedly fighting for his life.
TMZ reported on December 11 that Leon’s conditions, which are being treated on at a Las Vegas hospital, are unclear but his family and friends are very concerned. His wife Brenda shared an emotional Facebook post on December 9, where she asked her followers for help during this difficult time. “I know it’s been awhile,” she began before adding, “However, you know how I believe in the power of prayer. It’s been a tough year for us. Leon has endured a lot of medical problems. I’m reaching out to ask you to kindly pray for my beautiful husband Leon. So that he may overcome the obstacles that have crossed his path. We love you all & appreciate your support.”
