Some looking to profit from free tickets to Ali services

Posted:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A spokesman for Muhammad Ali's family says he's "disgusted and amazed" that people would try to profit from the memorial service for the late boxing champ.

People lined up for hours to get four free tickets for Friday's service, to be held in a 15,000-seat arena. The tickets were gone in about an hour. And some ticket-holders immediately went online, offering theirs for sale.

Others posted online pleas to buy tickets. One wrote that he and his mother were driving in from Chicago for the service for the boxing great and willing to pay $50 for two tickets.

Ali had insisted that the tickets for his memorial service be free.
