RR Auction Muhammad Ali Green Satin Boxing Robe

25 Jan

RR Auction Muhammad AliGreen satin boxing robe, with white trim and Ali’s name sewn on the back in large white letters, signed in black felt tip on a white pocket flap, “Ali alternate robe, Angelo Dundee.” Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Dundee which reads, “Date: June 30, 1975. Ali vs. Joe Bugner. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. One green boxing robe worn by Muhammad Ali when training for the Joe Bugner fight in Malaysia. It is green with white trim and signed by me. It is an alternate robe used by the champ. His name is embroidered on the back. Angelo.” In fine condition, with a bit of light feathering to signature due to nature of the material. The Ali-Bugner fight was held on Tuesday morning, July 1, 1975, which was Monday evening, June 30, 1975 in the United States. Ali easily won a 15-round decision. After the fight he backtracked on an earlier retirement statement and said he would remain in Malaysia and train there for his October 1, 1975, fight with Joe Frazier, remembered as the ‘Thrilla in Manila.’ It is not a stretch to say that this green satin robe was most probably worn by Ali in Malaysia after the Bugner fight while training for his last fight with Joe Frazier, as well as in Malaysia before the fight, as attested to by Dundee. Pre-certified Steve Grad/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
