From his unlikely transformation from Louisville Golden Gloves winner to Olympic gold medalist to three-time heavyweight champion and at one point, the most famous person on earth, Muhammad Ali and his journey were always chronicled and celebrated by Sports Illustrated’s writers and photographers. Now, all of those moments and memories are collected in Muhammad Ali: The Tribute 1942-2016, a new special edition that celebrates the life and legacy of this iconic athlete and champion.

He shook up the world and became the boxer who went from the sports page to the front page. As a young fighter he revolutionized boxing as the fleet-of-foot dancer who took the crown from Sonny Liston; his rivalry with Joe Frazier was legendary; he grew up into one of the toughest heavyweights of all time, winning The Rumble in the Jungle and the Thrilla in Manilla. He was then able to parlay that fame into a role as elder statesmen and inspiration to decades of athletes who would come behind him. All of those moments are captured here in distinct sections that take you from his humble beginnings through his athletic career and to his status as an elder statesman and inspiration to generations of athletes behind him.

Written with the keen insight that only Sports Illustrated can bring, featuring stats and images from every one of his legendary bouts, with hundreds of black and white and full color photographs that have become as iconic as the man himself, Muhammad Ali: The Tribute 1942-2016 will stand as a companion piece to a legendary man and athlete.
