EASTON, Pa. (AP) - Former heavyweight boxing champion Larry Holmes is recovering at home in eastern Pennsylvania after he was hospitalized for two days because of high blood sugar.

The 63-year-old Holmes tells The Express-Times of Easton (http://bit.ly/WLhD89 ) he was admitted to St. Luke's Hospital in Bethlehem Township on Tuesday after his blood sugar spiked. He says he had felt lightheaded and drowsy and his doctor sent him to the hospital.

He returned to his Palmer Township home Thursday afternoon and says he's taking medication and following his doctor's instructions to lose weight and eat right. He says blood sugar problems run in his family.

A telephone message left for Holmes was not immediately returned Friday.

Holmes grew up in Easton and was heavyweight champion from 1978 to 1985.
