Muhammad Ali’s Gloves Fetch Mega-Money at Auction

Two significant pairs of Muhammad Ali fight-worn gloves – Ali’s (then Cassius Clay) gloves from his February 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 sets a world-record price for any piece of boxing memorabilia at public auction.
