1976 Muhammad Ali vs. Antonio Inoki From-The-Camera Fight Negatives (26)

1976 Muhammad Ali vs. Antonio Inoki From-The-Camera Fight Negatives (26)

Spectacular imagery documents this internationally-heralded ring battle at the revered Nippon Budokan arena in Tokyo. Severe limitations on Inoki's mobility resulted in his spending much of his ring time on the mat, crawling around like a spider and kicking at Ali, who did not land a punch till the seventh round. Ali ultimately eventually suffered two blood clots in his legs, affecting his mobility for the remainder of his boxing career to the point that amputation was also considered. Twenty-six 35mm full color negatives/transparencies show amazing ring shots and unique behind-the scenes imagery of Ali's dominance. In NM-MT condition. The controversial bout is considered to be the precursor to mixed martial arts. 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 Unpublished, they have not seen the light of day for five decades.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.
