    Description

    1977 Muhammad Ali Fight Worn Shoes. Historic footwear carried the boxing legend through his last successful title defense, a fifteen round decision over the hard-punching Earnie Shavers on September 29, 1977 at Madison Square Garden. Though Ali emerged as the victor this night, the fact that he was staggered on several occasions by the the prohibitive underdog led many to believe that Ali had overstayed his welcome in the fight game, and three losses in his final four fights to come seemed to prove them right. Acquired directly from the Champ's longtime trainer and cornerman Wali Muhammad, the size thirteen white leather "Mitre" shoes are all original, right down to the laces and show the proper wear. "ALI" can be found in markered black block lettering inside each shoe. Ali's star continues to rise a quarter century after he hung up his gloves, with no end in sight. These important relics represent the end of an era that will certainly be honored for decades to come. Letter of provenance is from Wali Muhammad. LOA from Craig Hamilton/ JO Sports.
