Offered are the original, fight worn gloves used by "Iron" Mike Tyson in his fight in Atlantic City, New Jersey on August 17, 1986 against tough Jose Ribalta. Tyson wore Ribalta down, knocking him down in the 2nd, 8th and 10th rounds before stopping him for good in the 10th round to remain undefeated. These gloves are red leather and include remnants of the original laces. Each glove is marked inside the wrist, "Tyson Ribalta 8/17/86." Well worn Everlast gloves, but perfectly intact. Gloves come with a LOA from assistant manager of Tyson at the time Steve Lott. Also come with a video tape of Tyson using the gloves in the fight. A terrific opportunity to own actual fight gloves of an all-time great from early in his career.
