How Eli Goree Brought a Young Muhammad Ali to Life in One Night in Miami

In his boxing training, Goree gained further understanding of the champion. “One of the sayings in boxing is that the goal is to hit and not get hit,” he says. “And I think that that's something that Muhammad Ali carried with him in his life. To say something and not be held back or contained by the response. Stay on your toes, always moving, always dancing, never a stationary target, never able to be kept in one place by what people expected.”
