First transmitted in 1974, Sir David Frost interviews legendary boxing champion and former World Heavyweight title holder, Muhammad Ali. During the interview Frost presses Ali on a number of topics, particularly his forthcoming title fight with opponent George Foreman who Ali says has two chances of winning - 'slim and none'. As the interview progresses Ali talks about his religious faith, his thoughts on the civil rights movement and integration before ending with a characteristically poetic view on how he would like to be remembered.
