Recently elected to the International Boxing Hall of Fame (2015) Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini is an excellent boxer who has had some struggles in pulling his career out of the shadow of a 1982 fight where he defeated Duk Koo Kim, who died a few months later from brain injuries stemming from the intense battle. The offered duo of items signed by Mancini pays tribute to the skilled pugilist and feature pennings of average (“9-10”) potency. Includes: 1) Mancini signed Size L Red, Green and White (ala the Italian Flag) trunks with “Mancini” sewn onto the top in green on white trill and a white “Boom Boom” sewn on the bottom of the shorts and 2) 8x11 Mancini signed November 22, 1982 Sports Illustrated Mancini/Duk Koo Kim “Tragedy in the Ring” cover framed and matted to 14x17 dimensions. Comes with an Auction LOA from JSA.
