Boxing Forever! Making a ranking of the greatest boxers of all time is difficult, each one has its own myths. We, influenced by cinema and comics, could not fail to include Rocky Balboa even if they were “only” movies and Rocky Joe, even if it was “only” a manga and later a cartoon.
There is a name that probably everyone agrees, born exactly 80 years old, the champion that everyone loved, so much so that he became a pop icon, but even more a point of reference for the battles on civil rights and against war in Vietnam. The Comic Card # 21 is dedicated to the great Cassius Clay alias Muhammad Ali.
An incredible athlete who has a special bond with our country, when at just 22 he won the gold medal at the Rome Olympics in 1960. Many of his battles in the ring are famous, the fight in Zaire against George Foreman has become legendary. known as “Rumble in the jungle”.
An excellent way to learn more about the history of the great champion is the graphic novel “Muhammad Alì”, written by Francesco Barilli and designed by Lele Corvi for Double Shot Edizioni, from which our figurine is freely taken. Limited edition of 142 copies, just in memory of 1942, the year of birth of the great champion.
The first official release of the solidarity card will be Friday 29 April, at the Ex Centrale, on the occasion of the “Rumble in the Jungle” in Bologna, with the first professional match of the Italian champion Pamela Noutcho Sawa, who was also our solidarity card as Celebrative Sticker # 11. Event organized by our friends of the Bolognina Boxe Social Gym, to which the solidarity stickers of Pamela, the set of the Bolognese rockers Magenta # 9 and of course also this one were destined.
