Boxing legend Muhammad Ali watching Super Bowl on deathbed?

New Orleans: Responding to report regarding the death of Boxing legend Muhammad Ali, his wife Lonnie posted on Twitter a photo of Ali in a Ravens jersey, getting ready to watch today's Super Bowl.

Earlier, his brother told the Sun newspaper that Ali was on the verge of death.
Ali, considered to be the greatest boxer of all time, suffers from Parkinson's disease which he was diagnosed with in 1984.
Lonnie told USA Today that "Muhammad is rooting for the Ravens and Muhammad was completely (taken) with Beyonce".
"His eyes and mouth were wide open, so he's fine."
The 71-year-old appeared at the London Olympics opening ceremony but was very frail and needed assistance from his wife Lonnie throughout the event.
"My brother can't speak - he doesn't recognise me. He's in a bad way. He's very sick," Rahman Ali told the British newspaper.
"It could be months, it could be days. I don't know if he'll last the summer. He's in God's hands. We hope he gently passes away."
Rahman admitted that he had not seen his brother since midway through last year, claiming that the former boxer's wife was refusing to allow him access.
