Ticket For World Heavyweight Championship Fight Of Sonny Liston Vs. Cassius Clay

Green narrow ticket for the World Heavyweight Championship between African-American boxers Sonny Liston and Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali). Muhammad Ali, born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. (1942-2016) was an African-American professional boxer, activist, entertainer, poet, and philanthropist. Ali famously refused to be drafted into the military, citing his religious beliefs and ethical opposition to the Vietnam War.

Ticket is divided two thirds of the way from the left by a large rectangle box featuring two (2) black and white portraits of the boxers. There are seven (7) punched holes throughout the ticket. Five (5) of the punched holes are cross shaped while the other two (2) are crown shaped. Most of the ticket is in black ink with the seat section, number, and ticket price in red ink. On the back of the ticket is a legal statement about the ticket stating that the ticket is good only for the date listed with no refunds available. Artist Unknown.
