It’s remembered as “The Fight of the Century,” Muhammad Ali vs. Joe Frazier in perhaps the most famous boxing event in the modern history of the sport. It has been nearly 40 years since Muhammad Ali met Joe Frazier in the first of a trilogy of battles that may be the best series of contests between two combatants the world has ever seen. SCP Auctions is proud to present the actual trunks worn by Muhammad Ali in this most historic of his fights.
Deep maroon/red crushed velvet, trimmed in pure white satin, these trunks were originally purchased from the estate of Drew Bundini Brown. Brown was a long-time assistant of Ali’s and was present for this historic fight. The trunks are photomatched and have been signed by Ali – three times on one of the side trim stripes. One of the signatures was inscribed by Ali, “First Frazier Fight, Muhammad Ali”. Universally regarded as The Holy Grail of Boxing Memorabilia, these trunks will be offered as part of our Fall, 2011 Premier Auction.
