The Sweet Science

"I Am Ali," New Doc, Out Oct. 10; Promises Unparalleled Access To Ali Archives

The legend of Muhammad Ali has been dissected, with the thoroughness of an obsessive compulsive house cleaner.

By the looks of it, "I AM ALI," just might do the trick on shedding some light on the most acclaimed athlete of any and all timesa and I say that with a degree of safety, as I know that the world as we know it will have to be in a different place for such a persona to emerge on both the sportsman stage, and on the grander stage, as a character to be admired, loathed and studied for ages.
