Synopsis

Muhammad Ali is not only the greatest heavyweight boxer ever to have stepped into the ring, he is also the most recognized man on the planet; a man who rose above his own sport, and all sport, and is the greatest living icon of the modern age."The Treasures of Muhammad Ali" allows readers the opportunity to experience and truly appreciate the boxing and humanitarian legend's glorious achievements through a stunning selection of 200 photographs and a stylish text, as well as through 25 items of Ali's own personal and private memorabilia. Study his early fight contracts, read his personal letters, browse famous fight programmes and admire the removable fight posters...This sumptuous book spans Ali's entire career, from his early days growing up in Kentucky through to his amateur career and 1960 Olympic success, his early professional bouts and world title fight with Sonny Liston. The book goes on to candidly discuss his conversion to Islam and the controversy surrounding his refusal to be inducted into the US Armed Forces, before showcasing his legendary comeback fights: the 'Rumble in the Jungle' and the 'Thrilla in Manila'.

The book charts Ali's retirement, fight with Parkinson's, life outside the ring and his incredible impact on world culture."The Treasures of Muhammad Ali" is a unique celebration of the life of one who is quite simply, "The Greatest".
