Muhammad Ali


Fight Night Round 4

I played the demo for Fight Night Round 4 and it was truly amazing even though you couldn’t choose from more than 2 boxers (Manny Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton). I had always wanted to buy one of the earlier games in this seris but never got around to it although I think I may finally get it this time around. The cover alone with two of the most iconic boxers of all time, Muhammad Ali (Greatest of All Time) and Iron Mike Tyson, being features makes me want to play that fight right now

It certainly helps that GameStop is running a Fight Night Round 4 Trade-In Deal which allows you to trade in 3 games (in working condition) to save $59.99 off the game.

It seems like a pretty good deal but it would help if I had any of the games on the list. I have no problems trading away Left 4 Dead because ever since the free DLC update, the game is no longer as enjoyable as it once was. I can’t remember how many hours in a night I would spend just trying to beat the game but minor tweaks in the game just don’t make it very fun anymore.

Two other games that I have which can be found on the list are Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. A couple of months ago, I probably would have traded away CoD4 without a problem but I have started playing it recently and there’s no way I’m letting go of that … until Modern Warfare 2 comes out.

I think my brother might have a couple of sports games that are on the list and if he is willing to part with them, I think I’ll go pick up a copy. The offer is set to expire on July 12th which is 3 day so if I’m going to do it, I need to decide before I leave for vacation. That doesn’t really leave too much time left but we’ll see what happens.

I have attached the link for a list of available games here, be sure to check it out. Also if you are getting the game, let me know and I’ll be sure to play against you sometime:

Trailer: New Documentary “Facing Ali”

Wow, this certainly came out of nowhere! A fantastic new trailer for a documentary about greatest boxer of all-time Muhammad Ali called Facing Ali has debuted on Apple today. I had heard about some documentary but hadn’t heard of this at all until tonight and it looks simply looks amazing. I think Ali’s life story is a the most remarkable sports story out there and this documentary looks like it will be an unforgettable look at one of the greatest athletes ever.

Three-time World Heavyweight Champion Muhammad Ali defeated almost every top fighter of the golden age of boxing and symbolized the sport for generations of fans. Now, ten of his acclaimed rivals pay tribute to perhaps the world’s most beloved and inspiring athlete in Pete McCormack’s Facing Ali.

This documentary includes appearances by George Foreman, Larry Holmes, Earnie Shavers, George Chuvalo, Sir Henry Cooper, and Joe Frazier, among many others. Lionsgate is distributing Facing Ali with SpikeTV, but hasn’t set a theatrical release date for this yet.

It claims to change the way you see Muhammad Ali forever. I am not sure it will do that for me since I have followed and watched a lot of his old fights but it can certainly open the eyes of a lot of the younger Americans here about why he is considered the greatest of all-time.

I originally saw the clip on FIRST SHOWING.NET, so make sure the check out the entire article over there.
