    Description

    1977 Drew "Bundini" Brown Cornerman's Jacket Worn During Ali vs. Shavers Bout. Dating from the last successful defense of the Heavyweight Championship belt earned at "The Rumble in the Jungle" in 1974, this jacket was in Muhammad Ali's corner as he secured a fifteen-round decision over Earnie Shavers at New York City's Madison Square Garden. Televised nationally, and viewed by over seventy million, the bout confirmed Ali's status as having the greatest heart in the sport, as he finished the fight on nothing more than force of will, his body battered and exhausted. Crafted from white satin and black trim to provide an almost formal appearance, the "Everlast" jacket spells "Muhammad Ali" in arching letters on verso and "Bundini" at the heart on front. Wear is appropriately light, and a couple spots of staining on the front cause no ill effects. LOA from JO Sports, Inc.
