Boxing champions: Muhammad Ali vs. Sonny Liston
About this creation




Project 'Most famous photographs of all time' continued- Victorious Muhammad Ali standing over beaten down Sonny Liston is the image that usually comes to mind when thinking of famous heavyweight boxing champion. This rematch holds the record for the lowest attendance for a heavyweight championship fight, but has nevertheless made history thanks to the photographer Neil Leifer. I had to make some compromises when recreating this photo, beacuse using the original perspective just didn't look right in LEGO.I still hope that you can get the feeling of watching a man who could 'float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.'

Very cool! I'm doing a series on famous photographs and paintings too! And I found out that the next one I'm going to post is the same as your "Assassination of Oswald." I'll make a reference to you when I do. ;) -LB Senior

This is brilliant and I'm surprised no one has taken the time to comment. I saw a documentary about the great Cassius Clay not so long ago. He is a great man and is definately a legend. You've done a great job portraying a great piece of sporting history. Boxing isn't like it used to be, completely sold out for $'s just like F1 :-(
