His third wife Veronica Porche also said in an interview on Friday that her two daughters with Ali, Laila and Hana, were on their way to see their father.
‘My daughters have both flown there and I will be hearing from them when they arrive at the hospital,’ Porche told Radar Online.’I can’t comment more than that but I will say it is not so great, I’ll just say that much. He’s a real hero. It’s a sad situation.’
Ali’s second wife, Khalilah, also said that one of her daughters was rushing off to see the boxer in the hospital.
