Fit for a King, Ali vs. Bugner, 1973

Homage to Ali: Neil Leifer pays tribute to the legendary Muhammad Ali in an exclusive set of classic photographs. Each photograph is in an edition of 40 signed dye-sublimation prints on ChromaLuxe aluminum panels, ready to hang.

Fit for a King, Ali vs. Bugner, Las Vegas Convention Center, February 14, 1973: For the Valentine’s Day bout against one-time sparring partner Joe Bugner, Ali abandoned his usual white terrycloth robe in favor of this uncharacteristically elaborate design. Elvis Presley, in town for a series of performances at the Vegas Hilton, gave Ali the $ 3,000 robe earlier that week with the hope that he’d wear it to the fight.
