Trivia

It's rumored that Ray Fisher will portray Ali. Fisher has previously portrayed Ali in the the play "Fetch Clay, Make Man". David Oyelowo is also rumored to portray Fraizer but since he's also set to star as Sugar Ray Robinson in "sweet thunder" maybe they won't be able to choose him. See more »
