Recently British newspaper The Sun published a series of portraits of Muhammad Ali from a photographer, Zenon Texeira, who told the newspaper he took them two months before the boxing legend’s death last week.
These are the last photos ever taken of the legend. British photographer Zenon Texeira said this about their time together.
“I felt his aura”.
In these extremely powerful portraits, the Greatest boxer of all time, Ali poses with his fists raised one last time still refusing to give in to Parkinson’s disease.
And people are in love with these powerful images.
