Muhammad Ali and his family never seriously considered donating the boxing great's brain for research, according to the doctor who treated him. "Not really," was Dr. Abe Lieberman's answer when he was asked Monday if submitting the brain for research was discussed. Lieberman said he didn't think boxing contributed to Ali's contraction of Parkinson's disease but he couldn't be "a hundred percent" certain. The doctor spoke at a news conference at the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix. Lieberman was among those who diagnosed Ali in 1984. The doctor said he believes Ali had the disease earlier, when he fought Larry Holmes in 1980. Ali thought the Holmes fight did serious damage.
