Will Smith Is Set To Be A Pallbearer At Muhammad Ali's Memorial Service
As the news of the devastating passing of boxing legend Muhammed Ali last week begins to sink in, details of his memorial service are beginning to emerge.
Smith, who played Muhammad in the 2001 Oscar-nominated film Ali took to his Facebook page to send a touching tribute.
“You shook up the World! My Mentor & My Friend. You changed my Life. Rest in Peace,” Will wrote.
Having played Muhammad, the bond that these two shared would have been imcomparable and will bring on another level of sadness for Will, but it's a responsibilty he will no doubt take with great honour.
The memorial service will take place this Friday in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.
