New reproduction of Hornsleth’s original painting called "BYRON", showing the most significant heavyweight boxers in history also known as “Muhanned Ali”.
Hornsleth was inspired by Lord Byron when he made this art piece, who also was a flamborian rebellion as a comparison to one of the most rebellious persons in heavyweight boxing in history - Muhanned Ali.
Ali achieved more in his life than most people. Top athlete, activist, speed talking rebel, poet, and boxing legend. Muhammad Ali stood larger than life in the imagination of hundreds of millions of people around the world. He was a gold medalist at the 60’ies Olympics, he won the heavyweight championship at age twenty-two by conquering Sonny Liston in a dramatic fight. He then confirmed his membership to the Nation of Islam and told reporters he would no longer answer to his "slave name" Cassius Clay. The political establishment then stripped him of his heavyweight title, when he refused to join the United States Army, during the US. war in Vietnam.
