    1971 Ali-Frazier I Official Program Signed by Joe Frazier On March 8, 1971, Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali fought for the first time at Madison Square Garden in New York. Both were undefeated. Both were considered champions, Ali because he had never lost his title in the ring and Frazier because he had beaten just about everyone else, establishing himself as champion during Ali's absence from the ring. An epic battle ensued in which Joe Frazier emerged victorious, winning a 15 round decision and flooring Ali in the process. It was probably Joe Frazier's finest hour. Presented here is the scarce official program to this well remembered event that has been signed on the interior by Joe Frazier. This 52 page official program measures 8.5" x 11" and features pictures of both fighters on the cover in a LeRoy Neiman rendition. The interior has photos and stories of both fighters and is unscored. There are no rips, tears, writing or creases. Very minor corner and surface wear, clean inside and out, a fine example. LOA from Craig Hamilton/ JO Sports with additional LOAs from James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA and Mike Gutierrez/MGA.
