    Description

    1970 Ali vs. Quarry Fight Program. Nine months after political pressures related to his boycott of the Vietnam draft forced Ali to vacate his Heavyweight Championship, the controversial superstar announced that he had signed to fight Jerry Quarry in Georgia, which had no state commission. At the time, Ali's conviction for draft evasion was on appeal to the Supreme Court. The bout took place a month and a half after Ali's announcement, and despite the tremendous personal stress of a threat of long imprisonment, the former Champ worked his old magic, stopping Quarry in the third round at Atlanta's Municipal Auditorium. This scarce program from a bout at the height of the draft-dodging crisis presents as a stunning NRMT with the single exception of a penned correction of a fight on the undercard on an interior page. Sourced from the same sportswriter's personal collection as the other Ali programs listed in this auction.
