    1965 Muhammad Ali Signed Massive Photograph of Liston II Knockout.

    UPDATE: Please note that this photograph is credited to Ken Regan, not Neil Leifer.

    We've all seen the famous Neil Leifer photograph thousands of times--in fact, it is widely considered the greatest sports photo of all time. But we've never seen it quite this large, printed as a poster measuring 40x52" in dimension, and bearing a proportionally appropriate black sharpie signature from the man who successfully defended his Heavyweight Championship title in a tiny Maine arena that day.

    The event remains one of the most controversial in boxing history, even more than half a century later. Was it a legitimate knockout, or a "phantom punch?" Did Ali really flip the script on the terrifying knockout artist, or did Liston take a dive for the money? The mystery only enhances the intrigue, and ensures that this image will remain the "Mona Lisa" of the sport. Poster presents without condition flaws, and is housed in a substantial wooden frame, ready for display. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
