Muhammad Ali brings to life one of the best-known and most indelible figures of the 20th century.

The three-time heavyweight boxing champion captivated millions of fans throughout the world with his mesmerising combination of speed, grace, and power in the ring, and charm and playful boasting outside of it.

Born Cassius Clay, Jr., Ali rose from boxing amateur to Olympic gold medallist and heavyweight champion, just as he had promised he would at the age of twelve. He wrote his own rules – in the ring and in his life – infuriating his critics, baffling his opponents, and riveting millions of fans.

He spoke his mind and stood on principle, staying true to his Islamic faith and refusing induction into the U.S. Army, even when it cost him his livelihood. Banished for his beliefs, he returned to boxing an underdog, reclaimed his title twice, and became the most famous man on earth.

An intimate portrait of a larger-than-life global icon, this four-part, eight-hour documentary tells the story of an exceptional athlete whose influence transcends boxing.

Muhammad Ali will air weekly at 8.30pm from Sunday, 28 November on SBS. Each episode will be available on SBS On Demand the same time as its broadcast.

  1. On this programme will they put that he was gutless, would not go to war and allowed others to fight and be killed so that he could get in the ring and hurt other people, hitting them until many became senseless. That’s how he made his money – hurting other people but too gutless and cowardly to go to war and fight for his country.
    Please put that in this documentary….
