Muhammad Ali was perhaps the greatest athlete of the twentieth century. But Ali was never just a boxer; he was a fighter. In Fighting Words, editor Keith McArthur curates the very best writing about Muhammad Ali from his vilification at refusing to go to Vietnam to his re-emergence as a saintly hero at the 1996 Olympics. This collection brings together writing from those who fought against him, those he inspired and from Ali himself. Fighting Words is a must read not just for boxing fans, but for anyone interested in twentieth century America. Featuring writing by: Muhammad Ali, George Foreman, George Chuvalo, James "Quick" Tillis, Ferdie Pacheco, Davis Miller, Victor Bockris, Mike Marqussee, Janaya Khan, Jack Cashill, President Barack Obama and many more!
