One of the most important collections of boxing memorabilia hits the auction block this fall when bidding opens on the collection of the late legendary trainer Angelo Dundee.
As we reported last month, hundreds of items from the Dundee’s career including numerous Muhammad Ali fight-worn gloves, trunks and other memorabilia will be sold via SCP Auctions.
Dundee also trained Ray Leonard and 15 other world champions.
Among the collection highlights are several significant pairs of Muhammad Ali fight-worn gloves including Ali’s (then Cassius Clay) gloves from his February 25, 1964 bout against Sonny Liston and his gloves from his March 8, 1971 bout against Joe Frazier (Ali-Frazier I). These two pairs of gloves represent Ali’s two most legendary fights.
Dundee’s son Jim plans to donate a portion of the proceeds from the November 2012 sale to the Muhammad Ali Foundation.
