Original Vintage Fight Program

Beautiful original vintage fight program, gorgeous color images of the two legendary boxers.

1971 Muhammad Ali Vs. Jimmy Ellis Program. Fight program from the July 26, 1971 bout held at the Astrodome in Houston. Muhammad Ali and Jimmy Ellis were set to fight for the vacant NABF title, but that wasn't the main plot line. Angelo Dundee had been both fighters corner man since  the start of their careers. Ellis and Ali were friends and had sparred together numerous times in the mid 60's when Ali was the champ and Ellis was a prospect, although Ellis was two years older at the time. Dundee had been with Ellis a bit longer and decided to stay in his corner for the fight while one of the other trainers went and worked with Ali. Ali won with a TKO in the 12th and last round of the fight. EX quality exhibited throughout.
