Part 2 - S1 E2

Premiered On: 01/18/2005

Putting a racist spin on a Progressive-era law intended to fight commercialized vice, the U.S. government brings charges against Johnson under the Mann Act, citing his past relationships with white women. He is convicted and sentenced to prison, but skips bail and flees to Europe. After several years as a fugitive, he defends his heavyweight title against Jess Willard in a still-controversial 26-round fight in Cuba.
