1975 Muhammad Ali vs. Chuck Wepner From-The-Camera Fight Negatives (46)

1975 Muhammad Ali vs. Chuck Wepner From-The-Camera Fight Negatives (46)

Marvelous imagery of the "Bayonne Bleeder" & "The Greatest" look like test shots from the first two "Rocky" films. Forty-six 35mm full color negatives/transparencies show amazing ring shots of the greatness of Muhammad Ali and the pure heart of Chuck Wepner. In NM-MT condition. This fight was the basis for the Rocky film series. Unfortunately, Wepner turned bitter and resentful and ultimately sued Sylvester Stallone over the use of his "story," and as was the case against Ali, he lost. The original negatives and images in this collection are by the personal photographer of Ali's manager Herbert Muhammad. Unpublished, they have not seen the light of day for five decades. Recently discovered, they come with the photographer’s rights. All of the negs/transparencies are unique, “Type I” images that can be used to make prints and products of the finest quality and huge scale.
