In a press conference June 4, Ali family spokesperson Bob Gunnell shared details of the upcoming memorial service, revealing that it will be held on Friday at 2pm at KFC YUM! Center in Louisville, KY.

Moreover, the service, which Gunner confirmed would be "held in the Islamic tradition," will be open to all, and live-streamed around the world. Former President Bill Clinton will be delivering the eulogy.

Following the public memorial, a procession will be held through the streets, and the family invites the public to join the parade in celebration of the late Ali. The procession will end at the cemetery, where his body will be interned privately.

As Radar reported, Ali passed away late June 3rd after succumbing to respiratory failure following a decades-long battle with Parkinson's Disease.
