The fight

$34.00
By the time Norman Mailer first meets up with Muhammad Ali at the beginning of The Fight, Ali’s doubters are everywhere. Even legendary broadcaster Howard Cosell ends up predicting the former champ’s fall from greatness. “The time may have come to say goodbye to Muhammad Ali,” Cosell said, “because very honestly, I don’t think he can beat George Foreman.” Mailer’s on-the-ground account of 1974’s “Rumble in the Jungle” not only captures the mythic drama of Ali’s improbable victory, but also chronicles the tumultuous carnival surrounding it in Zaire. Above all, it’s a paean to the sweet science that only Mailer, a pugilist himself, could deliver. About Foreman’s eighth-round tumble to the canvas, Mailer writes “He went over like a six-foot sixty-year-old butler who has just heard tragic news . . .” This t-shirt recreates the original cover art from The Fight’s first edition hardback.

      A WORD TO THE WISE
      Our shirt bodies are 100% cotton, sweatshop free, made in the U.S. of A. They are slim cut and definitely shrink some after a machine drying. If you haven't flown with us before, we recommend taking a step up in size if you think you might be on the borderline. There is no shame in being extra extra large, my dude.
