ALI GLOVES FROM 1964 LISTON WIN ON AUCTION BLOCK

0

NEW YORK: The gloves worn by Muhammad Ali when he defeated Sonny Liston to win his first heavyweight crown will go on auction block on Saturday (Sunday in Manila), three days before the fight’s 50th anniversary. The gloves, expected to bring more than $250,000 by Heritage Sports Collectibles, were used by the young fighter from Louisville, Kentucky, then named Cassius Clay to launch a legendary boxing career that made him a global sport icon. Clay won a gold medal at the 1960 Rome Olympics and four years later faced a heavily favored Liston at Miami Beach.
