Muhammad Ali set for burial after last hometown journey


Muhammad Ali is set to be buried today, Friday, June 10, 2016 after a procession which will travel through his hometown, passing by his childhood home to the first boxing gym where he trained as he makes last journey in the town where he spent his formative years.

Thousands of supporters are expected to line the streets as the 16 to 18 car procession is scheduled to pass the Ali Center, go by his childhood home, weave past Central High where he graduated and then continue to the Columbia Gym where he first trained.

The 90-minute procession will end at the Cave Hill Cemetery, where he will be buried in a private ceremony.

Actor Will Smith, and former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis will be among eight pallbearers. Ali died last week at the age of 74.
