Boxing legend Leon Spinks — who famously beat Muhammad Ali in 1978 — is hospitalized in Las Vegas, TMZ Sports has learned … and his friends say the situation is very serious.

Sources connected to the 61-year-old Olympic gold medal winner tell us … Spinks underwent surgery this weekend for abdominal problems (his 2nd surgery for the issue) and there were complications during the surgery.

We’re told the situation seemed dire at first … but Spinks seems to be doing better.

Leon’s wife issued a statement saying, “It’s going to be a long road ahead, but he’s strong and he’s starting to recover.”

Leon’s good friend Tony Orlando — the famous singer — is asking people to “Please pray for my friend Leon Spinks” … and said the boxer is “facing the greatest fight of his life.”
