Scalpers trying to make money off of Muhammad Ali service tickets

Posted: Updated:

Services begin today for boxing legend Muhammad Ali.

Today, an Islamic funeral prayer service will be held in Louisville, with a funeral procession and public memorial Friday. Tens of thousands of people are expected to be in attendance.

Tickets for the services are being given out for free, but scalpers are trying to make a buck. People are selling tickets for $200 to $300 online.

A spokesman for the Ali family called it, "despicable."
