One of the most famous moments in sporting history
- now available in high-quality art print format!
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 reproduction
of that legendary moment in a high-quality art print format, perfect for
a nice frame and a prominent place on the wall of home, office, or gym.
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.
