The fascinating interview gave viewers a frank look into Ali's thoughts on the Sonny Liston fight, his feelings about Islam and Christianity and his objections to the Vietnam War.

He also voiced strong opinions about interracial relationships, a controversial subject in the mid-1970s.

This is a one-of-a-kind look into Muhammad Ali at age 32.
