How to watch the Muhammad Ali documentary, part 1, on PBS.
Everyone has been waiting for the four-part Ken Burns documentary Muhammad Ali to air and it’s almost time. The film is sure to be a crowd pleaser with combat sports fans around the world. There’s been nothing quite like this and with PBS behind it, you know it’s going to be good.
Part one of the documentary will air on Sunday, Sept. 19 at 8/7c and will feature the early years of Ali’s life.
According to PBS, part one is aptly named Round One: The Greatest (1942-1964) and is described as the following:
“Cassius Clay rises from amateur boxer to 1960 Olympic gold medal winner. He turns professional and moves to Miami, sharpening his boxing skills and honing his genius for self-promotion. Meanwhile, he quietly joins the Nation of Islam and becomes a confidant of Malcolm X. In 1964, he shocks the world by upsetting the heavily favored Sonny Liston to win the heavyweight championship.”
