He was recruited in 1960. David King’s photographs of Ali, were taken in 1974 at his training camp in Deer Lake, Pennsylvania, when he was preparing for his world heavyweight title fight against George Foreman, held later that year in Kinshasa, Zaire, known as the “Rumble in the Jungle”. King documented everything in the lead up to the fight, from the intense sparring sessions to the quiet times he spent with his family and friends. King’s biography, “I Am King: A Photographic Biography of Muhammad Ali” was published by Penguin in 1975.
