A classic photograph of Muhammad Ali boxer training on a punching bag in Dublin.

“I photographed Muhammad Ali maybe four or five times throughout my career, but he never remembered me. I could sit in a hotel room watching him train for three hours, and he wouldn’t say a single word to me. The last time I shot him, I decided I wanted to write an article about him as well, because he fascinated me. When I turned up on the second day, he shouted at me. His brother had to tell him I was one of the good guys, but then Ali was always suspicious of everyone.” Terry O’Neill
