1976 Muhammad Ali v Antonio Inoki signed closed circuit poster
A scarce poster advertising closed circuit telecasts of the mixed-martial arts contest between Muhammad Ali and Antonio Inoki. The two met June 25, 1976 in Tokyo, Japan. The poster has been signed by Ali in vintage hand. Billed as 'East Meets West', caricatures of the two protagonists take center stage in a striking design that features the fighters names in glossy silver. The condition is good-very good with edge wear, scattered wrinkles and two small tears. There is an area of surface paper loss to the back caused by previous removal of a piece of sticky tape - see photos. The dimenions are 18" x 24".
