    1980 Matthew Saad Muhammad Fight Worn Robe from Lopez II Bout. It was the Fight of the Year in 1980, a wild and violent thriller that saw Saad Muhammad hit with twenty unanswered power shots in round eight before recovering to drop challenger Yaqui Lopez five times en route to a fourteenth-round stoppage to successfully defend his WBC Light Heavyweight belt. This is the white satin "Everlast" robe worn by Saad Muhammad both before and after the brutal affair, as period film and photography confirms.

    Note that the detachable hood has since been lost, but otherwise the match is perfect, the distinctive black tackle twill, "Matthew Saad Muhammad" text on verso both unusual and unmistakable. Robe is also missing the original black belt and exhibits a degree of toning from wear and storage, but it presents beautifully and ably recalls one of the most thrilling nights of boxing in the past four decades. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA (autograph). Auction LOA from SGC Authentic (autograph).

    Guide Value or Estimate: $1,500 - up.

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