The boxing legend died on Friday at age 74 in a Phoenix-area hospital at 9.10pm from septic shock 'due to unspecified natural causes,' family spokesman Bob Gunnell announced on Saturday during an afternoon press conference.

Gunnell revealed that Ali actually was hospitalized since Monday suffering from respiratory issues, as he battled Parkinson's disease for 32 years.

He shared that it was a 'very solemn' time when the boxer's family came together to say their final goodbyes.

Gunnell said the family is planning to hold a private funeral on Thursday for the icon, and that a public funeral will be held on Friday in Louisville, Kentucky at the KFC Yum! Center starting at 2pm.
