Ali Rap 2006 | TV Show Watchlist

Premise

8 pm/ET ESPN CLASSIC “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. His hands can't hit what his eyes can't see.” Muhammad Ali last fought on Dec. 11, 1981, so his pugilist poetry (often directed at his opponent) has gone virtually unheard by an entire generation. The words and witticisms of “The Greatest” were as powerful as his punches, and they're celebrated here in dramatic readings by James Earl Jones, Jermaine Dupri, host Chuck D and many others in this hip tribute.
