Today boxing legend Muhammad Ali is being laid to rest.

The procession is scheduled to pass the Ali Center, his childhood home, high school, first gym where he trained, and other hometown spots. Ali reportedly planned his own funeral years back, specifying that he wanted it to be as open as possible so his fans would be able to say goodbye.

Bill Clinton, Will Smith, Bryant Gumbel, Lennox Lewis and more will be among attendees of the services.

Watch the public service ceremony live below:

RIP to the champ.
