The Thrilla in Manila

The Thrilla in Manila was the third and final boxing match between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. It was contested in 1975 for the heavyweight championship of the world at the Philippine Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City, Philippines, on Wednesday, October 1. When Muhammad Ali passed away in June of 2016 I was inspired to create this piece using a technique I like to call “photo-illustration”.
