“I don’t have a mark on my face. I upset Sonny Liston. And I just turned 22 years old. I am the greatest!” Not a person here doesn’t know this moment like the back of their hand. Ali proves what he has been saying all along, that he is the greatest! It is a moment of glory, triumph, and ultimate achievement. Nobody with a pulse can help but be pulled in by this iconic moment. However, there is a subtle, darker aspect to this unforgettable moment. As Ali is yelling that he is the greatest, Joe Louis is standing inches from him. Louis, the man that up until that point, was undeniably the greatest of all time. And this amazing moment for Ali, the new greatest, completely overshadows the presence of Louis, the old greatest. Louis doesn’t hand him the torch. Ali grabs it, and leaves Louis in the dust. No more evident of this, is the symbolism of the ring reporter pulling Ali in, while literally pushing Louis away. You can’t help feel good for Ali. And if you watch Louis, you can’t help but feel bad for him.
