PHOTO OF THE DAY: MUHAMMAD ALI

February 13th, 2013 By Pedro Fernandez

WHO IS IN THIS INTERESTING BUNCH SITTING RINGSIDE?

San Francisco, CA– I’m going to name the obvious people in this picture. As for the not so well known boxing characters seated here, I’ll leave that to people like birthday boy & matchmaker supreme Johnny Bos. Muhammad Ali and his wife Lonnie (or Veronica?), a younger Bob Arum.

Can You Name Everybody Here?

MUSTACHE GIVES APPROXIMATE DATE

In 1980, Arum, who had promoted Muhammad


off and on, was trying to get Ali a comeback title fight. But as is the case today, Arum has no play in the heavyweight division. As for Ali and facial hair, he had cut his lip badly and allowed a mustache to grow as he tried to get ready for the Larry Holmes fight October 2, 1980.

COMMENTS

  1. Looks like Matthew Saad Muhammad in the picture. The woman next to Ali isn’t his current wife, Lonnie, but his second wife, Veronica Porche.
