Ali On The Heavy Bag

Muhammad Ali practices on the heavy bag before his fight in 1971 with Joe Frazer.

This framed limited edition photograph of Muhammad Ali is printed on traditional photographic fibre-based silver gelatin paper.

Each photograph comes in a contemporary classic black box frame. The box frame has a fillet which creates a space between the print and the glazing. So there is no contact with the glass. The whole effect is that of a deep box.

For protection, the photograph is mounted behind 3mm Waterwhite acrylic glass which keeps the photograph safe from harmful UV rays and acts as an anti-reflective shield.

This memorable pose of Muhammad Ali was captured by Chris when Ali was practising on the heavy bag before his fight with Joe Frazer in 1971. It was the first time that two undefeated boxers fought each other for the heavyweight title and it was billed as the Fight of the Century
