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!
The Mouth That Roared, Miami Beach, October 9, 1970: “It was impossible to take a bad photograph of Ali,” said Neil Leifer. ”I would often see him doing this signature point in the ring, inspired by the Uncle Sam recruiting poster, almost saying, ‘I want you!’ to his opponents.” Fresh on the wave of his comeback, Ali got himself in great shape to fight Jerry Quarry on October 26 at the Municipal Auditorium in Atlanta, winning in three rounds.
