ABSTRACT
The article reports that boxer Muhammad Ali has lost significant weight because he has trouble swallowing food, which can be a complication of Parkinson's disease. It has been nine years since he lit the Olympic flame. Twenty-four years since his last fight. Ali has been in decline for 20 years. About two months ago, seeking relief of pain along his spinal cord, he underwent surgery at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital to fuse two vertebrae in his neck, one of his sport's lesser costs.
