Former heavyweight champion out of hospital after falling ill

Former heavyweight boxing champion Greg Page was released from a rehabilitation center on Tuesday, a month after he was hospitalized with pneumonia and other health problems.
Page, 48, was released from Frazier Rehab Institute in Louisville. He was sent there after being hospitalized on Nov. 24.
The former WBA heavyweight champ suffered brain damage after a 2001 fight in northern Kentucky. After the fight, he slipped into a coma, then had a stroke during post-fight surgery. He is paralyzed on his left side and uses a wheelchair.
Page became the champ in December 1984, when he beat Gerrie Coetzee in South Africa.
