Muhammad Ali’s motorcade procession will be 90-minutes long and will include a small tour of the coffin passing by his childhood home, the Ali Center, The Center for African American Heritage, and then down to Muhammad Ali Boulevard. The tour will end at Cave Hill Cemetery, in which the family will have a private burial before the public funeral service at KFC Yum! Center at 2 p.m.
Mike Tyson was seen helping Will Smith escort Ali’s coffin into a black hearse when Tyson was said to be “too emotional” to even attend the funeral. He had a change of heart and booked the earliest flight to Kentucky last night to be one of the 8 pallbearers, along with Will Smith.
The President of Turkey, Recap Tayyip Erdogen, also left in rage after finding out he was cut from being able to make a speech due to the tight program space.
This is the 2nd day of memorial services for Ali. The Muslim ceremony was Thursday evening for the 74-year-old, who died last Friday. More than 14,000 people joined the family for the prayer service at Kentucky’s Freedom Hall.
