Description

As everyone from former Heavyweight Champion Jack Dempsey to President Kennedy to members of the NAACP vehemently opposed Sonny Liston and his rightful claim to the title, former champion Floyd Patterson met with Liston in a July 22, 1963 re-match. The result was identical to their first bout: a first-round knockout by Liston. Encapsulated and Graded NM 7 by PSA, this full ticket was issued at the Las Vegas Convention Center as Liston proved his earlier knockout was no fluke. One of three at its tier with none graded higher, this crisp voucher features printed seating/event details, as well as black-and-white head shots of the combatants. With razor sharp edges/corners, strong perforations and an immaculate reverse, this boxing heirloom is every bit deserving of its lofty technical praise.
