Good Start, but....
21 September 2019 | by arfdawg-1See all my reviews

This starts off good while promising to be Clay's story in his own words.

It quickly descends into a straight report of his early wins with with next to nothing about his personal life.

He was an interesting guy. This could have been better. He comes across as a black racist. Nation of Islam, anyone? Once he got money he turned all Richard Pryor.

The show gets rather tedious pretty quickly, It descends into clips and some interviews but really no insight into Clay/Ali. He doesn't believe in war but beats the crap out of his opponents. Hypocrite much?

There is one thing I can say for sure. We'll never see the days of ALi, Frazer and the rest again. the 70's and 80's saw great atheletes in all sports. No more.
