Lonnie Ali, Muhammad Ali

Muhammad Ali L'immortale

Muhammad Ali

Muhammad Ali is always with us. So much has been written about him and over half of it came directly from the horse’s mouth. Elevated to stardom by his boxing success he brought a magical feel to the sport with his swift movement, his fists and his bold, irreverent and prophetic tongue. But fame was not everything to him and he worked tirelessly to make the world a better place for everyone. Muhammad Ali l’Immortale is a collection of new pictures, that he himself had started assembling from his archives. They shed light on the person behind the myth, painting an intense portrait of a man who had the gift of inspiring others. The book begins with a preface by his widow Lonnie Ali and the touching eulogy read at his funeral on 10th June 2016. In it you will find some of Muhammad’s sharpest and best known quotes interspersed with comments from modern icons like Bob Dylan and Barak Obama. With over 200 rare and iconic pictures and the transcript from his speech on British television, entitled “Get ready to meet God”, this book tells the real story of the greatest boxing champion of all time. Boxer. Believer. Father. Husband. Legend. Muhammad Ali has proven that a man, alone, can change the world.
This book is not only a tribute to him but also an invitation to visit or learn more about the Muhammad Ali Center, in Louisville (Kentucky) or online at alicenter.org
