Champions Forever pitches Foreman, Frazier, Holmes, Norton and of course Ali together one more time. We see each boxer making their boxing accendancy and giving insight into their fights against each other. Ali is the focus, and rightly so, and shows despite his condition that mentally he is a sharp as ever. Foreman as you expect is articulate and humble but it is Ken Norton's thought's that really stand out for me. Having never heard him speak before I found him insightful, with an earthly honesty about him, both in his respect for others and in his belief (that I share) that he beat Ali in their third encounter. If you love boxing there is nothing like this documentary, shame about the soppy music Americans seem compelled to put in the background to point people to the sincerity of the fighters when interviewed singularly. It's there for all to see producers so let them get on with it !!!!
