Will Smith, who starred as Ali himself in the movie Ali, is one. Lennox Lewis, a former heavyweight champion of the world, is another. The rest are Ali's family members, friends or sparring partners. 

Here's the list, via WLKY's Eric King. The event will take place at 2 PM. The arena seats 22,000 people.
