American Fighter is a sequel to the 2016 film American Wrestler: The Wizard. American Fighter is directed by Shaun Paul Piccinino and will pick up with Ali again but this time he’s trying to raise money to help his ailing mother. Since there was no other way to make money, Ali turns to the world of underground fighting. The movie shows his lack of skills which leads to some severe beatdowns. In the movie, we see a troubled handler named Duke (Sean Patrick Flanery) agree to train Ali in this sport of MMA. American Fighter was released on Friday, May 21, 2021.
