5. MUHAMMAD ALI & WORLD HEADQUARTERS

It’s a cool feeling, knowing we were able to go some little way to helping this documentary get made. We know how much work Tina’s gang put into it & we just came in at the tail end.

That’s good karma though, after all Muhammad has done for us over the years, by inspiring us to always be brave, to push on & never sell out, or settle for being bums.

Here is our favourite ever Muhammad quote…

Muhammad is the Champ & will always be the Champ in our eyes. He is a great, great man & we will always love him.

High above the stage in the downstairs Club, to the left as you look up at it, is a picture of Muhammad on the day he visited South Shields, totally surrounded by cops.

It’s a great image, but one that’s so high up on the wall, you may have missed it..?

This picture must have been taken moments later.

It too is good, but the one in the Club is way better. Look up & check it out the next time you come

Here is a picture of a little painting our friend gave us one Xmas, it’s about a foot long…

We liked it so much that we got one of our art student chums, Rach, who was working with us in the Club at the time, to use it as the basis for her creating the massive Muhammad Ali mural we now have, up in the Club.

Like the King of South Shields documentary, it is another fitting tribute to the Ultimate Champ…

Like the King of South Shields documentary, it is another fitting tribute to the Ultimate Champ & Leader of our Movement for so many years. Rest in Power Brother x.
