Former boxing champ Larry Holmes has been released from hospital after a high blood sugar spike.

The former heavyweight world champion is recovering at home in Pennsylvania after spending two days at St. Luke's Hospital in Bethlehem Township. Holmes was admitted on Tuesday after complaining of lightheadedness.

Doctors put the 63-year-old on a strict diet and urged him to lose weight. He is also taking new medication to stave off blood sugar problems that run in his family.
