A procession and funeral for Muhammad Ali will be taking place in Louisville, Kentucky this Friday.
The greatest boxer of all-time will be laid to rest in his home town and a eulogy will be given by former U.S. President Bill Clinton. Also, comedian-actor Billy Crystal and sports journalist Bryant Gumble are expected to speak at a public memorial service with at least 20,000 people in attendance.
The procession is slated to go through the main streets of Louisville, including the avenue that’s been named after him. It will also go to Broadway, where there was a procession held in 1960 to celebrate Ali’s Olympic gold medal.
He died in Phoenix, Arizona on Friday at the age of 74 after complications with a respiratory illness and Parkinson’s disease. His body will now be flown to Kentucky with a private family service scheduled for Thursday.
Muhammad Ali will be laid to rest at 2 p.m. local time on Friday and buried at the Cave Hill Cemetery.
