Muhammad Ali vs. Everything

In the red corner, at 6′ 3″ weighing in at 213 is the defender, Muhammad Ali … and his opponent, in the blue corner, weighing nearly nothing and invisible to the naked eye is tooth decay … yes, that’s right, tooth decay!

Start with Muhammad Ali spending 40 minutes discussing tooth decay. Add appearances by celebrity guest stars like Frank Sinatra and Richie Havens, a bunch of kids, and some truly wooden dialog straight out of a dental textbook. Throw in a song that doesn’t make any sense. And if that isn’t enough for you, top it off with narration by Howard Cosell, and you’ve got a recipe for dentistry success (or so they thought in 1976).

A sequel Ali and His Gang vs. Fat Cat the Dope King was planned, but apparently never released.  I wonder why?!
