Umro je najveći Muhammad Ali, a ovo su 34 fascinantne fotografije iz karijere tog titana 20. stoljeća

Redakcija Telegrama pripremila je mali fotografskih pregled njegove karijere

Muhammed Ali, trostruki svjetski boksački prvak, najkontroverznija i najkarizmatičnija sportska persona 20. stoljeća, preminuo je sinoć u 75. godini. Ali se od 1984. bori Parkinsonove bolesti, zbog čega se posljednjih godina slabo pojavljivao u javnosti.

Od neočekivane pobjede 1964. godine protiv Sonnyja Listona, kad mu nitko nije davao previše šanse, do podjednako neočekivanog povratka naslova prvaka deset godina kasnije, u legendarnom meču protiv mlađeg i snažnijeg Georgea Foremana, Ali je bio, sasvim sigurno, najuzbudljiviji boksač u povijesti.

Progonjen i slavljen zbog svojih vjerskih, političkih i društvenih stavova 1960-ih i 70-ih, kada mu je, između ostalog, na tri i pol godine oduzeta dozvola za boksanje zbog izbjegavanja odlaska u rat u Vijetnamu, Ali je, vrlo doslovno, definirao jednu eru. Redakcija Telegrama pripremila je mali fotografskih pregled njegove fascinantne karijere.

October 7, 1961, Louisville, Kentucky, USA: Muhammad Ali, future world heavyweight champion and legendary boxer, was still fighting under his birth name Cassius Clay when he knocked out Alex Miteff in the sixth round. In the arena's basement before the fight, Ali had a mixture of female admirers and relatives. His brother Rudy Clay, later known as Rahman Ali, was also on hand as Ali's official gofer.///Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali) with fans and family in the locker room., Image: 113427121, License: Rights-managed, Restrictions: EXCLUSIVE, Special Rates Apply, Model Release: no, Credit line: Profimedia, Polaris

Just months before the 50th anniversary of the fight, which remains one of the most controversial sporting events of the 20th century, both pairs of gloves are going on the auction block for the first time. Heritage Auctions is offering them as a single lot on Feb. 21 in New York. The auctioneer expects they will sell for more than $1 million. Bidding will start at $500,000. (AP Photo/File)
25. svibnja 1965. godine, Alija drži sudac, a na podu je izazivač Sonny Liston, manje od dvije minute nakon početka prve runde. Ali Listonu viče da se digne. Jedan od najkontroverznijih boksačkih mečeva u povijesti, obzirom da publika nije vidjela Alijev udarac koji je srušio Listona. Ali je Listona porazio godinu ranije, u borbi za naslov AP

May 18, 1971 - Modesto, California, United States: Sportsmen of Stanislaus Club invited Muhammad Ali to speak in Modesto. In the past, the SOS Club had hosted other boxing greats such as Max Baer, Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano and Joe Frazier. One month later in June of 1971, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Ali on the issue of his draft evasion conviction, clearing the way for him to box and eventually regain his title. SOS was a male-only organization at that time and charged $5.00 per dinner ticket., Image: 175186988, License: Rights-managed, Restrictions: , Model Release: no, Credit line: Profimedia, Polaris
