Boxing legend Muhammad Ali is "home and well" considering the circumstances, after being hospitalized, a close friend told Louisville's Courier-Journal.

Sources said Ali had been hospitalized near his Phoenix-area home after losing consciousness Nov. 19, five days after paying his respects at the funeral of former rival Joe Frazier, who died at 70.

The friend, John Ramsey, said he had spoken to Ali's wife, Yolanda, and she said "(Ali is) home and well, for a person who has had Parkinson's disease since the 1980s.

"He may not be going in the direction you or I like, but no one is on alert. That's the truth."

Ali will turn 70 on Jan. 19.
