This is a tale of two countries and one man's vision, a cautionary story about the hazards of prizefight promotion, and an historical accounting of one fighter's heroic bid for an unsurpassed place in history. With 1980's Nassau, Bahamas as the backdrop, Muhammad Ali began his comeback in an attempt to become the only boxer in history to capture the world heavyweight title for the fourth time. The politics, the egos, the behind-the-scene maneuvering, and the miraculous occurences that conspired to make this fight happen, it's all in here. The narrative is recounted in hard-hitting prose by promoter James Cornelius, President of Sports Internationale Bahams, Ltd. How was the fight financed? Why was Trevor Berbick the chosen opponent for Ali? Is it true that Don King nearly stopped the fight? And what about the soaring hotel bills? Read on, and discover for yourself whether the boxing ring was the only place that there was...DRAMA IN THE BAHAMAS
