Video: Billy Crystal Delivered An Incredibly Touching Speech At Muhammad Ali's Funeral

Muhammad Ali's funeral took place on Friday in Louisville, Kentucky, and it featured a number of famous speakers - including Bill Clinton and Bryant Gumbel. But it was undoubtedly comedian Billy Crystal who stole the show, delivering an incredibly touching speech for his friend of 42 years.

Crystal, who was asked to speak by Ali himself, told numerous stories of their friendship - throwing in a few well-timed punch lines as well. He made it clear just how much Ali - his "big brother" - meant to him.
