Published Reviews

"It deserves its place among the wealth of literature on 'The Greatest' because it is one of the most insightful examinations into the life of Ali."

Arts-Louisville.com

"In the wake of the death of Michael Brown and the unrest in Ferguson... And In This Corner...Cassius Clay seems especially timely."

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"The ultimate take away is to encourage the audience to use life's obstacles to channel their inner champion--which resides in everyone--and fight for what's right."

The St. Louis American
