Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Ken Norton: [about the rumor that he broke Ali's jaw in the second round when they fought in 1973] With Angelo Dundee saying i broke his jaw in the second round, they are telling a story ! That would make their fighter look invincible, that Ali could take insurmountable pain. I broke his jaw in the last round.

They come along once in a lifetime.
21 July 2010 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

It was 1964, I was 14 years old. It seems so long ago - well, it was. I was in the seminary in Subiaco Arkansas listening one night to Cassius Clay and Sonny Liston. It started a love of boxing that lasted a very long time.

This film was a blend of talking and boxing. It kept you glued to the screen so you wouldn't miss a word or a moment of action.

It was a well balanced film; giving the good and the bad. You gained a real insight into Muhammad Ali, and into those who fought him. A fight with Ali was literally a lifesaver for Ken Norton, who was broke.

An excellent documentary about a great man.
