All prices are inclusive of a 20 percent buyers’ premium.

Two significant pairs of Muhammad Ali fight-worn gloves – Ali’s (then Cassius Clay) gloves from his February 25, 1964 bout against Sonny Liston and his gloves from his March 8, 1971 bout against Joe Frazier (Ali-Frazier I) – each sold for $385,848 in the first session of SCP Auctions’ auction which concluded early Saturday.
