According to Muhammad's rep, the star is in "fair condition," is being treated by a team of doctors and is expected to have a "brief" stay in the hospital.
The former boxer — who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1984 — was previously hospitalized in December 2014 for pneumonia and January 2015 for a severe urinary tract infection.
