A Tribute to Muhammad Ali

Recently TAG Heuer paid tribute to Muhammad Ali by hosting a charity event.

It was attended by Lonnie Ali and several well-known personalities from the world of boxing including those who fought Ali, George Chuvalo, Earnie Shavers, and fighters who were inspired by him, Evander Holyfield, Roberto Durán and Julio César Chávez González.

The event was co-hosted by Paul “Magic Man” Malignaggi in the famous Gleason’s Gym in DUMBO, Brooklyn where Muhammad Ali trained in the presence of its Owner and Manager, Bruce Silverglade.

The Commemorative Timepiece

A commemorative unique timepiece made of gold was presented by The Muhammad Ali Center (Louisville, Kentucky), with a pair of Muhammad Ali-autographed boxing gloves, a commemorative medal, and certificates of authenticity, all stored in a custom studded leather case made in Switzerland for the occasion.

The unique timepiece, created by TAG Heuer, was inspired by the famous Ring-Master stopwatch introduced in 1957 and now on display in the TAG Heuer museum. The Ring-Master was equipped with 7 rings, each one featuring a different scale, including one for boxing.

The watch was auctioned with all proceeds going to The Muhammad Ali Center.
