On 19 July 1972, Muhammad Ali defeated Al "Blue" Lewis in 11 rounds at Croke Park, Dublin. It was an extraordinary week both for Ali and the sporting and cultural history of Ireland. Thirty years on, through interviews with dozens of those whose paths Ali crossed, Dave Hannigan presents this narrative.
