PHOENIX (AP) – Boxing great Muhammad Ali returns to his old Kentucky neighborhood one last time.

This morning, Ali’s body will ride in a miles-long procession spanning his life – from his boyhood home to the boulevard that bears his name and the museum that stands as a lasting tribute to his boxing triumphs.

Then in the afternoon, thousands of people will gather at the KFC Yum Center for a public memorial service.

Ali died last Friday at 74 after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease.
