Dundee estate selling gloves from 2 Ali fights
Question of the Day
One set of gloves was worn by Ali when he won the title from Sonny Liston in a huge upset in 1964, while the other set is from his “Fight of the Century” loss at Madison Square Garden in 1971 to Joe Frazier.
“It’s kind of bittersweet,” Dundee said. “These have been in our possession for nearly 50 years. Dad would bring them home and I would store them.”
On Thursday, each set of gloves had been bid up to $241,577. The auction, which also features gloves from Leonard’s infamous “No mas” fight with Roberto Duran in 1980 and other Ali memorabilia, ends Friday at SCPAuctions.com
Jim Dundee said money from the sale would help pay expenses for his sister, Terri, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, and some would go to the Muhammad Ali Foundation.
