Muhammad Ali is a name that will be known for centuries to come, not just in the boxing ring, but in regards to religion and politics as well. Born Cassius Clay, Ali finds himself following an Islamic religion who finds himself facing the possibility of prison when he refuses to be drafted to fight in the Vietnam war. His refusal to go, despite the fact that he is offered a rather cushy deal, eventually leads to the truncation of his boxing career in the states. He believes that standing up for what he feels is right is worth the sacrifice, and the war that he wages does not come without its casualties. The actions that take place chronicle a man who is passionate about his beliefs and willing to do whatever it takes to stand up for himself. Eventually, he is able to box again and comes back with a battle that will forever brand his name in the sports world as one of the greatest athletes who ever lived.
