Muhammad Ali, Shadowboxing, 1977

By Michael Gaffney
About the image
"Most of the time, there were crowds of people surrounding the world's most famous person. This is one of those rare times I was alone with the Champ in Madison Square Garden, NY, as he worked on his hand and foot speed hours before the Earnie Shavers fight. Ali floated effortlessly in circles, gracefully dancing while grunting to power each snapping punch in the air. He always made it look so easy…elegance in motion."  - from THE CHAMP by Michael Gaffney
