Thoughts on the Muhammad & Larry Documentary

Great vintage footage of both training camps...... Ferdie Pacheco (Ali's doctor) emerges as a good guy for warning Ali to quit fighting and resigning from Ali's camp in 1977.... Angelo Dundee does not come off so good.... You get the sense that he willfully ignored all the warning signs (slurred speech, slowed reflexes).... By the way when did Angelo turn into Don Zimmer's twin.....? You could have put Angelo in the Yankee dugout next to Mr. Torre and Yankee fans would not tell the difference...... Larry Holmes comes off as a decent, well grounded family man..... Still married to Diane, for 30 plus years..... Loved Cosell's play by play, should have featured more of it... Is it me, or did Ali have men massaging him with black goo 24/7 while in training camp....? looked like something out of the Exxon Valdez.... could all of that oil seeped into his brain causing damage...? the sparring sessions in Ali's camp looked like Oldtimers day at Yankee Stadium, when they have to help the real old guys up the steps in the dugout..... meanwhile, the sparring sessions in Holmes' camp had punches thrown at the speed of light..... I think the special should have featured how awesome Larry Holmes was at throwing the jab..... priceless scene: Ali doing magic tricks for some young women, and his wife shows up to spoil the fun ... probably the most memorable scene was Ali not being able to hit the speed bag.... glad I watched it.
