Muhammad Ali (1942-2016)

LOUISVILLE, KY — Muhammad Ali’s last journey through his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky will be a goodbye befitting “The Greatest.”

And just the way he planned it…

A 16 to 18-car funeral procession starts at early this morning and will swing by his childhood home, his high school and the gym where he first trained.

The procession ends at Cave Hill Cemetery, where he’ll be buried in a private ceremony.

A public memorial service, featuring eulogies from Bill Clinton and other celebs, starts at 1 p.m. CT.

It comes one day after Muslim Americans honored the legendary fighter at a heartfelt prayer service.

Some 14,000 people filled a large conventional hall adjacent to Freedom Hall arena where Ali fought some of his early bouts, to view his closed casket and pay their respects.
