A Sports Illustrated Book-of-the-Year Pick
"This book should become one of the essential works for understanding the legendary fighter."
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"These are men of substance, worth getting to know. Brunt does them justice, but the author has done something even more impressive: He has found something new to report about Muhammad Ali." Sports Illustrated
"Brunt does an excellent job of bringing his subjects out of the shadow of The Greatest, recounting their often poignant tales of life before and after their dates with the champ. In the end, of course, we learn more about Ali."
"Makes it clear that boxing sure could use an Ali today--or any day."
Kirkus Reviews 2002 Canadian Sportswriter of the Year:
"FACING ALI has winner writtern all over it."--Bert Sugar, former editor, The Ring
"Brunt knows the sport of boxing cold and has given a voice to those whose customary mode of expression is their fists."--Quill & Quire, Canada's Magazine of Book News and Reviews
