  • Origin:
No other professional boxer has fascinated both athletes and spectators more than Muhammad Ali. This black and white photograph, signed by the legend, was taken during one of the press conferences promoting the 1980 bout between Ali and Larry Holmes held in Las Vegas and comes from the private collection of boxing promoter and telecommunications expert Henry "Hank" Schwartz. Ali was the first Heavyweight Boxing Champion to win the belt three times, and he had come out of retirement to battle Holmes in an effort to win the title a fourth time. However, the charismatic athlete had already begun experiencing the early stages of Parkinson's disease, and lost in his first and only defeat by knock-out. Displaying Holmes engaged in a bit of humorous rivalry by having a mustache scribbled on the image of boxing great, this signed photograph stands as a rare piece of modern sports history.
