Description

Appropriately billed as “The Fight of the Century” the inaugural bout between undefeated heavyweights Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier provided a celebrity-packed Madison Square Garden crowd with all they bargained for – and then some. The offered items were issued at that historic March 8, 1971 tilt. Includes: Program a 52-page guide detailing both combatants in pictures and text; the cover image is a colorful rendition composed by famed artist LeRoy Nieman (who sketched the event ringside that night). With covers and all pages intact, the programs shows between (EX-MT) and (NM) quality; Ticket Stub a “2nd Promenade” voucher with sharp edges/corners and an uneven admission tear.
