Doug and Muhammad Ali Photos

I recently came across these rare photos of Doug performing tricks for Muhammad Ali in the ring. Based on the fact that there was a lion present, I don’t think this was a real boxing match.

However, Ali himself was a big fan of magic, and was known to bring cards and coins with him to entertain fans and friends when the mood struck him. 

Oh if those walls could talk.
