Take home the iconic "The Phantom Punch" photo signed by the legendary Muhammad Ali

On May 25, 1965, heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali — only a short time before known as Cassius Clay — knocked out former champ Sonny Liston in the first round with a punch that scarcely anyone saw. This historical moment was captured by ringside photographer Neil Leifer in what became one of the most iconic images in sport, chosen as the cover of the Sports Illustrated special issue, "The Century's Greatest Sports Photos."

The signed photo is presented in a framed display and and will prove a fantastic, rare addition to any fans collection. This stunning item comes with a certificate of authentication.
