Facing Ali

I’ve been on a bit of a boxing tip lately – not watching the actual fights (snooze), but reading up on the history (The Great Prize Fight is all about 19th century boxing and it’s got as much stabbing and mick lynching as it does boxing) and watching a lot of documentaries. One of those is Facing Ali, which is a great film that goes through Muhammad Ali’s career by talking to a bunch of the guys who fought him. We’ve been gushing about this on the radio shows for the past few episodes so I figured I should probably mention it here too and give it some well deserved thumbs up.

After the jump, if you just want to see Ali in his own words, Blackula Jonez sent me a great highlight by Gorilla P, who he calls ‘the Genghis Con of boxing highlights’. I actually think he’s better.
