Description
 
Jan Philipp Reemtsma (au). A study of the boxing style of Muhammad Ali (MA); of his rise, ascendancy, & fall as champion of the world; & of how Ali the man came to reflect many of our own deep, often disturbing, cultural patterns. Takes as its  framework the legendary Ali vs. Joe Frazier fight in Manila in 1975, which is followed in 3-round sections. Explores the choreography that Ali crafted for his greatest title bouts, how he created a style that became its own myth, how he then came to have to act that style in the ring, & its damaging consequences. Provides portraits of Aliís opponents: Sonny Liston, George Foreman, Ken Norton, & Joe Frazer. Analyzes the 5 Rocky movies to show how closely linked they are with Aliís mythology.
