Chronicling the extraordinary life of one of the 20th century’s most iconic figures, the compelling two-part documentary What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali streams on Foxtel Now and screens on FOX SHOWCASE from this weekend.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua, with LeBron James and Maverick Carter serving as executive producers, What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali explores Ali’s challenges, confrontations, comebacks and triumphs through recordings of his own voice.

The documentary paints an intimate portrait of a man who was a beacon of hope for oppressed people around the world and, in his later years, was recognized as a global citizen and a symbol of humanity and understanding.

Alongside using Ali himself to guide viewers through his journey, What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali features archival footage, some of it previously unseen.

Muhammad Ali transcended sports in a way the world had never seen before,” says executive producer LeBron James. “It’s an honour to have the opportunity to tell his incredible and important story for the coming generations. He showed us all the courage and conviction it takes to stand up for what you believe in.”

The HBO documentary What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali will feature on Foxtel’s Saturday night documentary slot, where award-winning HBO documentaries and films air each week at 8.30pm AEST, streaming on Foxtel Now and screening on FOX SHOWCASE.
