The world’s greatest ever boxer, Muhammad Ali, trains for his fight with Alvin Lewis in Dublin, 1972. The logo superimposed on his chest, and the comic-book sound effects surrounding the speedball he’s boxing, are inspired by Ali’s famous retort to an air stewardess when she asked him why he wasn’t strapped in like his fellow passengers: “Superman don’t need no seatbelt!”
