    1976 Muhammad Ali vs. Ken Norton Heavyweight Championship Full Ticket PSA Good 2. "Norton must fall, Norton must fall!" That was Muhammad Ali's mantra going into his rubber match with San Diego's Kenny Norton - the third fight between the two, held at Yankee Stadium on September 28, 1976. Pumping up both himself and the huge crowd inside Yankee stadium, Ali passionately repeated the three words over and over. He meant it, too. Desperately he wanted to get rid of the man who had previously beaten him, broken his jaw and held him to the closest of close decisions in fight number two. Norton's corner advised him to fight cautiously in the final 15th round and it cost him a controversial decision. At the end of fifteen grueling rounds, grueling for Ali mostly, a disbelieving Norton broke down in tears as he heard the unanimous decision victory for Ali reverberate around Yankee Stadium. He simply could not believe it. The ticket has some scattered minor staining and creasing, an attractive souvenir from a memorable encounter.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
