Muhammad Ali’s relative sells funeral footage for 1 million dollars

23 June 2016, 10:48

Lagos - According to UK’s Mirror, a footage allegedly taken by a family member at Muhammad Ali‘s private funeral has been offered for sale to various US news outlets for $1 million (over N280million).

So far all magazines, newspapers and broadcasters have reportedly refused to purchase the seven-minute video which allegedly shows the boxing icon ‘being lowered into the ground’.

A source who was offered a chance to buy the tape reportedly said: ‘It is disgusting that someone claiming to be member of Ali’s own family could deceive their own flesh and blood. There is so much affection for him and it is not something we would entertain no matter what the price.

The boxing legend died on June 3 after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease aged 74.

He was laid to rest at Cave Hill Cemetery in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky and his funeral was attended by his family, fans and close friends including Will Smith and former US President Bill Clinton.
