    Description

    1961 Sonny Liston vs. Jack Johnson On-Site Fight Poster. No, not that Jack Johnson, though if time travel were ever made possible, we'll be buying a ticket to that one. And, in fact, the other Johnson was scrapped from the card and Howard King substituted in, as a handwritten notation at lower left indicates. Liston would carry the day with a third round knockout. The terrifying Heavyweight would suffer his most notable loss three years later in the same "Miami Beach Auditorium" where this sign original hung, surrendering his belt to a youngster named Clay. The provided poster exhibits tack holes at the corners and general wear but presents very well. Dimensions 14x22".

    I thought that Peter Calderon was very pleasant and had a very professional attitude.
