Will Smith and Lennox Lewis to Be Pallbearers for Muhammad Ali

The service is scheduled for Friday.

Published June 7th

Muhammad Ali will be buried this Friday in his hometown of Lexington, Kentucky. It has now been announced who the boxing great's pallbearers will be, and among them is A-list actor Will Smith, who portrayed the boxer in the 2001 drama Ali.

Among the other pallbearers will be boxing great Lennox Lewis and members of Ali's family. The service will include a procession and a private burial, as well as a public memorial at the KFC Yum! Center.

The ceremony is expected to not only focus on the late great's achievements within the ring, but outside the ring as well, as he was a committed civil rights activist and humanitarian.
