    1971 Muhammad Ali vs. Joe Frazier I On-Site Boxing Poster. The most anticipated Heavyweight prizefight since the 1938 rematch of Louis vs. Schmeling took place on March 8, 1971 at New York City's Madison Square Garden, pitting an undefeated current Champion Frazier against an undefeated former Champion Ali, who had had his title stripped from him after refusing to enter the service during the Vietnam War. Ali's dreams of retaking the belt would come to an end when Frazier dropped him to the canvas in the fifteenth and final round with a devastating left hook. Though he would survive to complete the bout, the unanimous decision resulted in Ali's first loss.

    Still bearing signs of the browning cellophane tape that once affixed it to a wall in Manhattan, this enormously important poster heralds the biggest bout in Big Apple history. Beyond this tape, the poster presents as NRMT on a professional linen backing. Dimensions of poster 22x28".
