An Incredible Story
23 January 2016 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

The film was so successful, but caused so much controversy, that two years later Congress banned the interstate traffic in fight films...

This was the fight of the century, no matter what anyone says. Today (2016), you ask people about fighters in the 20th century and you might hear Holyfield, Foreman, Tyson and Ali. All great fighters, but did they ever cause a sensation like this? (Maybe Ali... maybe.) We have record high ticket prices, a stadium built just for one fight, the president of the United States asked to be the referee (he declined). And a fight that went many, many rounds and got people agitated along racial lines (which is never good). I suspect no other single fight affected the history of boxing more than this one.
