A British auction house says it’s offering the boxing trunks Muhammad Ali wore in the final fight of his career.
The MacGregor boxing trunks were worn by Ali during the “Drama in Bahama,” a December 11, 1981 match at the Queen Elizabeth Sports Centre in Nassau that pitted Ali against Jamaican Trevor Berbick.
Chiswick Auctions says the trunks were given by Ali’s trainer Angelo Dundee to close friend Hartmut Scherzer, a German sports reporter after the 1981 bout in the Bahamas.
According to the auction company, the fight was the only time Ali ever wore MacGregor trunks rather than examples made by Everlast.
The 39-year-old Ali faded against the 27-year-old Berbick, losing a ten round unanimous decision.
After the fight, Ali retired, his career ending with an overall record of 56-5.
