Edition of 40
US$ 4,000
Edition: -
Availability: December 2020
Take your place ringside with the indubitable champion of boxing photography, Neil Leifer, as he pays tribute to the legendary Muhammad Ali in an exclusive set of fine art prints. Powerful, nuanced, and adept at finding openings others would never see: the unmistakable Leifer touch!

Ali vs. Liston II, May 25, 1965: Between their two fights, Cassius Clay embraced the Nation of Islam and renamed himself Muhammad Ali, Sonny Liston was arrested, the rematch in Boston was scrapped just days before it was scheduled, and the desperate promoters finally found a site—a junior hockey rink in Lewiston, Maine. This triple exposure shot by Leifer on a 4x5 sheet of film was a potential cover for the Sports Illustrated issue on the upcoming Ali-Liston rematch.
