    1979 Leonard-Benitez On Site Poster (Autographed) On November 30, 1979 Sugar Ray Leonard won the first world title in his career stopping Welterweight Champion Wilfred Benitz in the 15th round. Also appearing on the show were Vito Antuofermo and Marvin Hagler who fought to a controversial draw in their World Middleweight Title match. Presented here is a very scarce on site poster to this event which has been signed in pen by Sugar Ray Leonard, Wilfred Benitez, Vito Antuofermo and is initialed by Marvin Hagler. Inscribed to boxing author "Peter" (Heller). The signatures are light, but readable. The poster measures 22" x 28" and is wonderfully illustrated. There is some edge and surface wear and some slight discoloration present, but this does not detract from this important poster, that displays very well. LOAs from James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA and Mike Gutierrez/MGA.
