    Description

    Sugar Ray Robinson vs. Carmen Basilio (United Artists, 1958). Poster (40" X 60").
    An 18-minute documentary, this is the abridged version of the 15-round bout between Sugar Ray Robinson and Carmen Basilio. Technically superior to the live, closed-circuit television broadcast seen in selected theaters, this film was preferred by fans. Within one day after its release by United Artists, The Robinson-Basilio Fight was booked simultaneously by 7000 theaters, even though only 850 prints were available. This rare poster promoting the picture is in nice condition for its age and size, with minor signs of handling: light stains at the bottom right, left border, and a smudge in the title, and pinholes in the borders. Rolled, Fine/Very Fine.
