Muhammad Ali’s funeral
A funeral procession for Muhammad Ali traveled through his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky today. It began at 9 a.m. and will end at Cave Hill Cemetery.
The procession passed by his childhood home and the first boxing gym where he trained — the places where the legendary boxer spent his early, formative years.
Ali, who planned his own funeral, laid out plans several years back. True to his giant character, he wanted it as open as possible — with a chance for his fans to say goodbye.
In that spirit of openness, Friday’s memorial service, began at 3 p.m.
