HBO has released the official trailer for "What's My Name: Muhammad Ali," a two-part HBO sports documentary about how Ali reshaped his life and career from being touted as the "greatest" heavyweight boxer of all time to becoming a staunch civil rights and controversial anti-war activist during the height of the 1960s civil rights movement and the Vietnam War.

Antoine Fuqua, the acclaimed director of "Training Day" and "The Equalizer" franchise, helms the documentary, which tells the story of the boxing legend in his own voice, narrated through old audio recordings of Ali, and featuring rare archival footage and photos.

Executive produced by Fuqua along with NBA superstar LeBron James and his longtime business partner Maverick Carter, "What's My Name: Muhammad Ali" is set to premiere on HBO starting Tuesday, May 14th, with part two to air the next day.
