Ali, who had long suffered from Parkinson's syndrome, died at 9:10 p.m. MST on Friday, spokesman Bob Gunnell said at a press conference in Scottsdale, Arizona, not far from the facility where Ali was hospitalized for a respiratory issue.

His public funeral will be held on Friday in Louisville, Kentucky, Gunnell said.
