Louisville - Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is a late addition as a pallbearer at Muhammad Ali's burial.
Ali family spokesperson Bob Gunnell says Tyson caught a late flight to be part of the ceremonies on Friday honoring Ali in Louisville, Kentucky. Other pallbearers include actor Will Smith and another former heavyweight champion, Lennox Lewis.
Gunnell says Tyson wasn't sure if he would attend the service because of a prior commitment. He says Tyson was highly emotional when he learned of Ali's death and wasn't sure if he could handle the emotions of Ali's memorial.
The ceremonies will start with a procession that begins at 14:30, taking Ali's casket past his boyhood home and the museum that honours him.
