Muhammad Ali: Man, without me, you'd just be a mouth and a microphone.Howard Cosell: And without me, you'd just be a mouth.
The poem Ali quotes in the movie before the Frazier fight, "Ali comes out to meet Frazier, Frazier starts to retreat, If he goes back any further, He'll end up in a ringside seat..." was in fact the poem he used before the first Liston fight and began, "Clay comes out to meet Liston, Liston starts to retreat..." and ends with the lines, "Never did they think, When they laid down their money, That they would witness, The total eclipse of the Sonny". Poor effort.
James Toney, Michael Bentt, Alfred Cole, Charles Shufford and Damien 'Bolo' Wills who all play opponents of Ali are - or were - real life boxers.
