Description

The second Heavyweight Title fight between Leon Spinks and Muhammad Ali was a true classic. A rematch of the February 15, 1978 bout won by Spinks by split decision, part II was as advertised with Ali leaving no doubt as to who was the better fighter that night and winning by unanimous decision. Upon emerging from the matchup as the victorious fighter, “The Greatest” became the first pugilist to win the heavyweight title on three separate occasions. The offered lot of (5) original September 15, 1978 posters in NM-MT condition features a colorful depiction of the two boxers fighting in the background with the New Orleans Superdome at their feet. The 18x24 promotional items have ticket sale and event information on the lower left corner and a copyright from the artist in the lower right corner. Produced on thick stock paper by New Orleans sports artist Sal Navarro. A true rarity with only a few other known specimens on the market, these posters are a must have for any dedicated boxing or Muhammad Ali collector.
