A Muslim prayer service will be held Thursday for late boxing legend Muhammad Ali in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. 

On Friday, a slow procession will drive through the neighborhoods and streets that played a key role in his life. 

A public memorial for "The Greatest" is also planned for Friday and is expected to draw tens of thousands of fans. 

Free tickets were made available for that event – and they sold out in an hour.
