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. Foster, Sahara Tahoe, Stateline, Nevada, November 11, 1972: The Ali-Foster fight was staged in the showroom at the Sahara Tahoe in Lake Tahoe, with the booths used for the dinner show earning ringside status. Muhammad Ali brought down light-heavyweight Bob Foster seven times before a Round 8 knockout. “Neil Leifer's work is the quintessence of great sports photography,” said Jerry Seinfeld. “It makes you hold your breath for a split second, just as you do when you're experiencing a great sports moment in real life.”
