Ali's biggest match, his fight with the US government. A film about the politics and hubris surrounding the Vietnam War and the revenge exacted on America's greatest sportsman of the 20th century because he refused to fight in that war.

The life and career of Muhammad Ali (1942- ) as seen chronologically in archival footage: Ali as a fighter, a personality, a political lightening rod, and a man. Boxers who fought him describe what led up to major fights and the matches themselves; they also offer personal revelations about their own lives: George Chuvalo's family losses, George Foreman's conversion, Ken Norton's gratitude, Ron Lyle's teaching, Earnie Shaver's encounter with the Klan, and Joe Frazier's good humor pack their own punch. The fighters talk about Ali's quickness, cunning, and recuperative powers - and how fighting him changed their lives. Written by

The life of Muhammad Ali is told by ten of his boxing opponents; George Chuvalo, Henry Cooper, George Foreman, Joe Frazier, Larry Holmes, Ron Lyle, Ken Norton, Earnie Shavers, Leon Spinks, and Ernie Terrell. They also reveals some harrowing and deeply personal stories about themselves.
This is a compelling telling of Muhammad Ali's story from another angle. He is such a magnetic personality that his opponents have been mostly silenced by his gift of gab. It's a nice retelling of the familiar story by the other voices and it does much more. These voices are allowed to tell their own stories and some of it is harrowing while others are uplifting. It's a definite must for true fight fans and fans of the human condition.
