NEW ORLEANS Ė Muhammad Aliís daughter scotched rumors of her father being near death Sunday, saying he was at home watching the Super Bowl.


May May Ali says she talked to her father Sunday morning on the phone and he was fine. She says he was watching the Super Bowl at home in Arizona, wearing a Baltimore Ravens jersey.


"Heís fine, in fact he was talking well this morning," she said in a telephone interview. "These rumors pop up every once in a while but thereís nothing to them."


The family later posted a photo on Twitter of Ali sitting in a chair wearing a Ray Lewis T-shirt.


The rumors were started by a report in a British tabloid quoting Aliís brother, Rahman, as saying the former heavyweight champion was near death. Rahman, though, said he hadnít seen his brother since last summer and had no contact with the family.


The report was widely repeated on the Internet, drawing expressions of condolences on Twitter and Facebook.


Ali suffers from Parkinsonís disease. He celebrated his 71st birthday last month.
