The boxing legend who passed away this past weekend will be laid to rest sometime this week.

With that in mind, the body of the 3-time heavyweight champion has arrived in his hometown of Louisville where he will be buried.

His body was airlifted from Arizona to Louisville where his public burial is expected to draw huge crowds.

Muhammed Ali was a civil rights activist of great repute and many mourned the loss of the legend.

Bob Gunness who is the spokesman for the Ali family says his body was accompanied by his wife, Lonnie, and other family members and friends.
