Directed by: Albert Maysles, David Maysles, Bradley Kaplan
52 minutes

An integral part of ESPN’s “30 For 30” Series, MUHAMMAD AND LARRY (2009) combines one-of-a-kind, never- before-seen archival footage from 1980 with newly-produced reflective conversations with boxing experts, luminaries, and those who were at the fight. Maysles intimately documented both Muhammad Ali and Larry Holmes, from sparring matches to private moments at home, as they prepared for their upcoming fight in 1980. MUHAMMAD AND LARRY takes a closer look at the connection that evolved, inside and out of the ring, between these two amazing athletes.
