Muhammad Ali Funeral: Tens of Thousands to Say Farewell

Muhammad Ali will be laid to rest on Friday, the culmination of a two-day farewell for the beloved boxing legend and civil rights hero who electrified crowds the world over. Tens of thousands from near and far are expected to line the streets of Ali's native city of Louisville in the southern U.S. state of Kentucky to bid goodbye to the three-time heavyweight world champion who died last week at 74 after a decades-long battle with Parkinson's disease.
