Mosley positions himself above eye level looking down on Muhammad Ali, capturing the crush of energy and excitement as fans reach toward the boxing star for an autograph. At the center of the picture is an intimate moment: Ali speaks directly to the young boy in the white hat, showing him something on some papers that he holds.

  • I am the boy dressed in a suit and tie and wearing a straw hat standing next to Muhammad Ali. I was around 10 or 11 years old at that time.
