Taken in 1971 at the famous 5th Street Gym in Miami, Ali feels the strain of a hard training session as he prepares for the first of his three fights with 'Smokin' Joe Frazier. The event, billed as The Fight of the Century, took place at Madison Square Garden in New York. Chris Smith has been at the forefront of British Sports Photography for over thirty years. His career in Sports Photography started at the Observer newspaper in 1970. Six years later he joined the The Sunday Times, where he has worked for over thirty years. Chris has covered every major event in the sporting calendar - from Rugby and football World Cups to horse racing, cricket, athletics, sailing and boxing. He has been the winner of The Sports Photographer of the Year four times - and of the Individual Sports Picture of the Year twice. His book 'Sport in Focus' shows his extensive coverage of sport and many of his award winning photos. Chris lives in London with his wife Sylvia. He is still working and continues to photograph sport.
