This is THE Muhammed Ali Documentary
16 May 2019 | by genious-35413See all my reviews

I have watched many and ANY documentary I can find on Muhammed Ali - including the obvious When We Were Kings. While that one is great, this is the DEFINITIVE movie of Ali. It is a flawless account of the greatest boxer of all time.
