Ali boxing gloves fetch record $385,848 at auction

Two pairs of Muhammad Ali fight-worn gloves — Ali’s (then Cassius Clay) gloves from his Feb. 25, 1964, bout against Sonny Liston and his gloves from his March 8, 1971, bout against Joe Frazier (Ali-Frazier I) – each sold for $385,848 in a SCP Auctions’ November auction which concluded early Saturday. The sale of these two items set a world-record price for any piece of boxing memorabilia at public auction in Laguna Niguel, Calif.
