"First Minute First Round Muhammad Ali vs. Sonny Liston 25th May 1965"
One of the most famous moments in sporting history! Despite defeating Sonny Liston in Miami in 1964 and becoming champion for the first time, the former Cassius Clay was still being afforded little respect by the establishment. He was ridiculed upon joining the Nation of Islam and changing his name to Muhammad Ali. But once the rematch began, there was no doubt who was The Greatest! Within one minute, Ali knocked out the former champ, and retained his title. The passion of the young, toned, budding legend was perfectly captured for the first time as he stood over Liston, yelling in derision, asking him to get up so he can pound him some more. The image appeared on the cover of Life Magazine, cementing Ali's place as a legitimate sporting hero and a larger-than-life personality.
This spectacular poster gives you a beautiful enlargement of that legendary moment. From the tangled body of Liston on the mat, to the perfectly-toned body of Ali, to the photographers capturing the stunning moment for the morning papers, to the Lewiston crowd sitting in stunned silence - it's all here in this amazing print! A black-and-white classic for your wall - a must for any serious fan.
