Beautiful March 8, 1971 ringside action photograph of the "Fight of the Century" between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. The clear and bold image shows Ali on the attack but with Frazier easily dodging the blow. This is the only example of this image we have ever seen and it is easily among the best from this famous fight that exists. The photo is from the archives of the New York Daily News and is likely from one of there famous staff photographers! The condition and quality are both outstanding and while developed on blank backed paper, it is clearly vintage to the early 1970's.
