On Saturday, his family spokesperson Bob Gunnell announced plans for Ali’s memorial service,
which will be held on Friday at Louisville’s KFC Yum! Center at 2 p.m. local time and open to the public. Former President Bill Clinton, Billy Crystal and Bryant Gumbel will give eulogies.

There will also be a procession throughout Louisville and fans will be able to stream the service online.

“Muhammad’s extraordinary boxing career only encompasses half his life. The other half was committed to carrying a message of peace and inclusion to the world. Following his wishes, his funeral will reflect those principles and will be a celebration open to everyone,” spokesman Bob Gunnell said Saturday.
