The 74-year-old Ali — known as “The Greatest” — passed away on late Friday at an Arizona hospital due to respiratory problems.
His official cause of death was septic shock due to “unspecified natural causes”, family spokesman Bob Gunnell had said.
The fighter had suffered for 35 years with Parkinson’s disease, diagnosed three years after his retirement in 1981.
A public memorial service and funeral procession will be held on Friday for Ali in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, where he will be buried.
Former United States President Bill Clinton will deliver a eulogy.
