Family of Muhammad Ali outraged after fans try to scalp tickets to memorial

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - The family of Muhammad Ali is outraged after fans have been trying to profit off of free tickets to the boxing legend's public memorial service.

Family members, including some from the Chicago area, will be at a private funeral service taking place to honor Ali.
A public memorial will be held to celebrate his life Friday.

Thousands of people lined up to get tickets for that service Wednesday. They were given out on a first-come, first-serve basis.

But some fans who got tickets are now trying to sell them.

The event will take place at the KFC Center in Louisville.

Eulogists include former President Bill Clinton, actor Billy Crystal, and journalist Bryant Gumbel.

Those who were not able to get the free tickets will be able to watch a video stream of the service at a nearby park, which will host more than 10,000 people.
