"Ali: The Man, The Moves, The Mouth" DVD

This 60-minute documentary is narrated by famous boxing writer and personality Bert Sugar, and it's a solid overview and history of the man many would consider the greatest fighter of all-time. Utilizing plenty of archival fight footage (and a plethora of interview clips), the former Cassius Clay's life is examined in an honest, frank, and enlightening style. We get lots of Ali hamming it up, rhyming, boasting, and, most of all, fighting against some of the greatest names -- Sonny Liston, Joe Frazier, George Foreman...and more.

As a non-boxing fan, I was pleasantly surprised at this one, and perhaps serious boxing students won't need this concise history of one of the greats, but as a primer, this one works perfectly well. Enjoyed! (MVD VIsual)
