The Trials of Muhammad Ali In Video


Bill Siegel’s documentary is a good reminder of what the boxer faced in and out of the ring in the 1960s and early ’70s.

This full, footage-rich documentary shows respect for the social, legal, political, religious and pugilistic battles of the former Cassius Clay. Most of those came after he controversially renamed himself Muhammad Ali and brought upon himself more blows than Sonny Liston and Floyd Patterson combined. Most damaging was his refusal to be drafted during the Vietnam War, resulting in his boxing license being suspended, his title as heavyweight champion being stripped — and he faced five years in prison.
