18 year-old Olympic gold medalist Cassius Clay feels ready to take on the heavyweight championship. In this dramatisation the incredible career of the legendary fighter is portrayed, as he gains in stature and power under the guidance of Angelo Dundee, Clay takes the heavyweight title away from Sonny Liston. Soon after his victory Clay converted to Islam, changing his name to Mohammad Ali, and begins a three year court battle to avoid being drafted into the army on religious grounds. This dramatic biography of a legend (starring Ali himself) excuse the pun, certainly pulls no punches.
