EASTON, Pa. -

Former heavy-weight champion Larry Holmes is on the road to recovery following a recent health scare.

Holmes was admitted to St. Luke's Hospital earlier this week after his blood sugar spiked, officials said.

He was released from the hospital Thursday. He's now recovering at his home in Northampton County.

A representative for Holmes said he's taking medication and following his doctor's orders to diet and exercise.
