i 2nd that also look out for [Fallen Champ the untold story of Mike Tyson ] this was right after he went to jail it has great interviews with Ms. Washington that make me feel that Mike may have not done it ....[Champions Forever] i'm sure you have seen, it has Ali, Holmes, Foreman, Frazier and Norton talking about the fights and has some great clips......[The Greatest Pound 4 Pound ] Bert Sugarand Bill Clayton are asked who was the best P4P fighter of all time, i think Bert says SRR Clayton has Duran but has great clips of old fights ....[Muhammad Ali The true life story of a legandry boxer] Great old clips his first pro fight , him sparring with Ingemar Johansson, Ali Vs Patterson fights lots of great stuff on this one

I wasn't too fond of "Fallen Champ"; but the others I recommend and will throw in "The Fight: One Nation Divisible" on the first Ali-Frazier fight; and if you want some older stuff, "AKA Cassius Clay" is worth owning.

Ali also has a movie starring him, playing himself now i don't recall that name of this movie, i belive it also had the real ali fight too. I think it was Showtime who used to show these films.

Muhammad Ali: The Whole Story is an excellent DVD 2 disc set. It's a documentary that basically covers his life and career. Lots of details on his fights. Good stuff.
