April 03, 2002|Associated Press

RENO — Mills Lane, who has refereed some of boxing's biggest fights, was hospitalized in intensive care Tuesday after suffering a stroke.

Friends said the 64-year-old Lane was found unconscious in his home Monday morning and was taken to St. Mary's Regional Medical Center.

"His condition has definitely shown improvement through the night," Dr. Philip Landis said.

Lane suffered speech loss and weakness in his right side. He was listed in stable condition.

"He has made progress," said Dr. Paul Katz, a neurologist and stroke specialist.

"The language is clearly the concern."

Lane's wife, Kay, was out of town when her husband was stricken.
