    Description

    1943 Sugar Ray Robinson vs. Henry Armstrong Full Ticket. On August 27, 1943 Sugar Ray Robinson fought Henry Armstrong in New York at Madison Square Garden. Robinson had won forty-three of his first forty-four professional fights and was emerging as a "can't miss" star in the welterweight division. Armstrong, at age thirty, was in the twilight of what had been one of the most decorated careers in the history of boxing. Already a three-weight class champion Armstrong, even at this stage of his career, was considered a dangerous opponent for any foe.

    This night however would belong to Robinson who won a one-sided ten round decision, easily out-pointing his aging opponent. Presented here is an extremely rare, unused official ticket to this event. This official ticket measures 2.25x6", names both fighters and includes section, row and seat number. The ticket has been laminated and shows minor edge and surface wear but overall is in excellent condition. This is the only example of this extremely rare full ticket that we've seen. LOA from Craig Hamilton/ JO Sports.
