    1980 Muhammad Ali Water Bottle Used in Training, Signed. The iconic fighter's once great career was limping toward its sad conclusion when he sipped from this water bottle at his Deer Lake, Pennsylvania training camp while preparing for his second to last professional bout, an eleventh-round TKO at the fists of Larry Holmes. A large "Ali" is written in marker on the stained grip tape that coats the foot-tall glass bottle, and a period blue ink autograph from the fighter rates 7/10 in blue ballpoint and is preceded by his handwritten "Love." The bottle derives from the personal collection of Ali's late assistant trainer Wali Muhammad and is accompanied by a letter of provenance from his daughter. Letter of provenance from Daria Muhammad. LOA from Craig Hamilton/JO Sports. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
