Lot 83: Mike Tyson's Fight Trunks - Michael Spinks Match
On June 27, 1988 at the Convention Center in Atlantic City, heavyweight champions Michael Spinks and Mike Tyson squared off in a title unification fight. Many sportswriters had actually given Spinks a chance in this fight, but Tyson disproved them all, taking the frightened Spinks out in the very first round. Offered here are the actual fight trunks worn by Tyson in the fight. Tyson's classic black satin with black trim and USA and GO AMERICA patches on each leg. There is a label, "Tyson-Spinks" inside the front waist at the drawstring. Used, but perfectly intact. The trunks from arguably one of the biggest fights in the career of "Iron" Mike Tyson. Letter of authenticity from Tyson's early assistant manager Steve Lott and a video of the fight showing Tyson wearing the trunks.
