"The world was his stage. Wherever he went that became his stage. It just happen that Miami was the backdrop."
6 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It was a boxing gym, but trainer, Angelo Dundee, called it "The Theater" for his then young protégé, Cassius Clay. On his way to becoming a champion and transcending the sport while becoming Muhammad Ali, Clay honed his craft at Miami's 5th Street Gym. Fresh off winning an Olympic gold medal in Rome, the Louisville-born pugilist moved to Miami to train for his professional career.

In what could be a documentary by itself, Ali's relationship with Malcolm X, the Nation of Islam, and its founder, Elijah Muhammad, is included as a testament to his growing social consciousness. It was Muhammad who bestowed the name the new champion would reveal soon after his February 1964 victory over Sonny Liston. Liston, a background actor on the stage that is the life of Muhammad Ali, is given some mention, including a back-story. This presentation ends soon after Ali lost the title because of his refusal to fight in the Vietnam War.
