    Description

    Clay vs. Patterson (Allied Artists, 1965). One Sheet (26.75" X 41.5").
    This poster is the extremely rare full bleed version, with no borders on the top or sides and only a very thin bottom border and is from the November 22, 1965 fight between Cassius Clay and Floyd Patterson. Clay was already calling himself Muhammad Ali, however as the poster makes clear, not everyone was accepting his change of name yet. And that included Patterson, who refused to call him Muhammad and paid the price. Patterson went down in the 12th round of a scheduled 15 round fight, but to most who witnessed it, Patterson should have gone down sooner. Ali extended the fight just to further taunt the man. The poster had small chips out of the right side and the upper corners and a few cross-fold tears. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
