Our Montblanc Great Characters 2023 collection honours Muhammad Ali, one of the most influential athletes and humanitarians of the 20th century. Three-time heavyweight champion of the world and a tireless advocate for civil rights, this collection of luxury writing instruments and stationery celebrates his achievements in and outside the boxing ring.
Nicknamed ‘The Greatest’, Muhammad Ali shook up the world with his strength, skill and charisma. Winning gold at the 1960 Summer Games in Rome at just 18 years old, he went on to be crowned heavyweight boxing champion of the world three times – a rare achievement. His greatest triumph, however, was his activism; sacrificing a long period of his career to stand up for what he believed in, Ali used his fame to advocate for civil rights and peace.
