U.S. boxing great Muhammad Ali was back in a hospital Thursday for the second time in four weeks.
He was being given follow-up care related to a urinary tract infection that first put him in a hospital December 20.
A family spokesman declined to give the name or location of the hospital or say what day Ali checked in, but he said the three-time world heavyweight champion was in stable condition.
Ali was expected to be released Friday, in time for his birthday on Saturday, when he turns 73.
Ali suffers from Parkinson's disease, which was diagnosed in the mid-1980s.
He had a storied career as a professional heavyweight boxer from 1960 to 1981.
