ALI/NORTON II

oil on board, 12"x15", painted in 2011

SOLD

This is a palette knife painting throwing caution to the wind using different colors and really freeing up. This kind of painting needs to done more often. This was of the rematch 6 months later between Ali and Norton on Sept. 10, 1973 in Inglewood, CA. Ken Norton broke Ali's jaw in the first fight. Fight II was a high energized fight more commonly seen in lighter weight classes. Each round seemed pretty even with Ali winning in the end by a controversial split decision.
