In 1960, a young boxer named Cassius Clay came to Miami
, determined to become world heavyweight champion.
In the end, he became something more—a legend. Combining original footage with interviews of those who were
closest to him—including his trainer, Angelo Dundee, fight doctor Ferdie Pacheco, and Ali's Miami neighbors
and friends—Muhammad Ali: Made in Miami is the story of that evolution, as well as a chronicle of Miami's
historic black community and the famed Fifth Street Gym. See why, without Miami, there might never have
been a Muhammad Ali.
