During the war against advanced colo-rectal cancer (from 2006), which included two primary tumors and two recurrences, Fred Ho, hammered by massive chemo and radiation, found inspiration in the fight for his life from watching movies of The Greatest, Muhammad Ali. Ali s bold, militant, defiant and spirited resistance to the forces of American racism, combined with his élan, grace and humor (both poetical and personal), his indisputable athletic abilities and genius, and the inspiration to the world s peoples (especially the oppressed) and their embrace of him, served as constant inspiration to Fred Ho. During one of his recovery periods, Ho decided to compose a work for his Green Monster Big Band to honor The Greatest.

Mohamed Ali, le plus grand champion de boxe de tous les temps, combinait la poésie des poings et le fracas des mots. Plus qu'un sportif, plus qu'un champion, Mohamed Ali a façonné sa propre légende. La carrière de cet être hors norme est jalonnée d'un succès acquis avec un brio et avec un panache renforcé par une désinvolture insolente. Imaginez un champion pouvoir déclarer : "je suis beau donc je dois gagner". Le point culminant de la légende Ali a une date et un lieu. Par un soir de septembre 1974, dans l'étouffante moiteur du stade de Kinshasa - Zaïre - alors qu'on le dit diminué par 10 ans de gloire internationale, apeuré par son adversaire, un George Foreman, au plus fort de sa jeunesse et de sa combativité, Ali va s'imposer dans une fin de match homérique. Ali le diabolique, à la huitième reprise cueille Foreman d'une droite sèche et précise comme un couperet. Le talent du boxeur le plus prometteur de la boxe s'effondre devant l'aura du maître du ring, le "sorcier du noble art". Norman Mailer prend pied sur la narration de l'événement sportif pour le transformer en oeuvre littéraire. Le sport devient mythe, Mailer devient Homère et Ali son Ulysse. Un grand événement pour le monde de la boxe et pour le monde des lettres.

Genre: Sports Drama, Biopic

Notoriously obsessive director Michael Mann and star Will Smith devoted nearly two years and over 100 million dollars from the coffers of Columbia Pictures and other financiers to creating this biography of boxing great Muhammad Ali, which focuses on the ten-year period of 1964-1974. In that time, the brash, motor-mouthed athlete quickly dominates his sport, meets and marries his first wife (Jada Pinkett-Smith), converts to Islam (changing his name from Cassius Clay), and defies the United States government by refusing to submit to military conscription for duty in Vietnam. His world heavyweight champion title thus stripped from him entirely for political reasons, the champ sets about to win back his crown, culminating in a legendary unification bout against George Foreman (Charles Shufford) in Zaire, dubbed the "Rumble in the Jungle." In his travels, Ali becomes a symbol of power to disenfranchised African-Americans everywhere and meets such luminaries as Malcolm X (Mario Van Peebles), Martin Luther King Jr. (LeVar Burton) and Maya Angelou (Martha Edgerton).
