Lot 982: Mint 1971 Muhammad Ali vs. Joe Frazier I Program
On March 8, 1971 Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali fought for the first time in Madison Square Garden in New York. Both were undefeated. Both were considered champions, Ali because he had never lost his title in the ring, Frazier because he had beaten just about everyone else and had established himself champion in Ali's absence from the ring. An epic battle in which Joe Frazier emerged victorious winning a 15 round decision and knocking Ali down in the process. Presented here is the scarce official program to this well remembered event. 52 pages in fine condition. Photos and stories of both fighters. Unscored. No rips, tears or writing. No center crease. Very minor corner and surface wear. Clean inside and out. A fine example.
