    1971 Frazier vs. Ali Artist's Proof Etching by Neiman: Rounds 1 & 2. The master sports artist proves he doesn't need kaleidoscopic color to get the job done. Rare image derives from the famed sports artist's study of the Fight of the Century, the first meeting of Frazier and Ali in 1971. With an economy of lines (yet still remaining true to the chaotic structure that characterizes his work) Neiman documents the see-sawing brutality of the first edition of this storied trilogy. Here we see Ali coming out strong in rounds one and two, but the tide would start to turn in the third. Signed and identified as an Artist's Proof in pencil by Neiman at lower border. Dimensions 15x20". Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
