‘What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali’: LeBron James-Produced Documentary On Boxing Legend Is Coming To HBO Soon

What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali, a two-part documentary set to be produced by LeBron James, has a premiere date. It will debut on HBO on May 14.

Antoine Fuqua, who has directed films such as The Equalizer and Training Day, directed both parts. The documentary will be the first feature production from LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s SpringHill Entertainment.

“Muhammad Ali transcended sports in a way the world had never seen before,” James said. “It’s an honor to have the opportunity to tell his incredible and important story for the coming generations. He showed us all the courage and conviction it takes to stand up for what you believe in. He changed forever what we expect a champion to be, and I’m grateful that SpringHill gets to be a part of continuing his legacy.”

The film will use Ali’s words to narrate and also features never-before-seen footage.

What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali is set to air on HBO on May 14 at 8 p.m.
