Lot 0755
Original program for the NABF heavyweight championship bout between Muhammad Ali and Ken Norton on March 31, 1973, at the Sports Arena in San Diego, California, 17 pages, 8.5 x 11, vertically signed and inscribed on the back cover in ballpoint, "To Noel, from, Muhammad Ali, Peace, 1973," with another hand adding a date of March 22, 1973. In very good to fine condition, with general handling wear, and stains to the back cover. Norton's unorthodox fighting style was enough to earn him a controversial split decision and snap Ali's 10-fight win streak; Ali was later revealed to have suffered a broken jaw in the final round. Ali reclaimed his title five months later with an impressive split decision victory of his own. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from Beckett Authentication Services.
