    There are better docu’s on boxing’s politics and Muhammed Ali, this was pretty poor i mean you had Bryant Gumble playing the pro black commentator (really?).
    It was rather anti Ali and his politics. It’s really quite biased. Not worth watching over others but, i guess it would be worth it if you’ve already seen the rest.

    Both of the documentaries on The 1st and 3rd fight were outstanding and shows the changes taking place during those times and how they were interwoven into the fight. Both had triumphs of the spirit that changed history. I do believe that Mohammed Ali’s taunting and verbal antics made this fight the greatest and built up the purse and anticipation and neither of them was a disappointment in that ring. Ali-Frazier I and III were spectacular. Their spirit made you love them and that’s what you had to do to make it in America. Sweat and Blood and bravery and personality and perserverence and determination. marks of the human spirit, not just the American spirit. That’s what a legend is. Spartans of the ring.
