Emile Griffith fight worn robe
A vintage Tuf Wear boxing robe worn into the ring by former welterweight & middleweight world champion Emile Griffith. Black velour finish with gold satin trim on the collar, lapels and breast pocket. The robe was sourced from Emile's son Luis Rodrigo Griffith and comes with a photocopy of the original LOA he signed to accompany the robe (the original copy was misplaced). You can still make out where the name 'Emile' was stitched onto the robe under the front pocket - the style is consistent with that of other fight worn Griffith robes. In the LOA his son attests "this boxing robe is fight worn and used in the ring by Emile Griffith in several of his fights during his boxing career". The robe remains in VG-EX shape for it's age. There's soiling to the left wrist (see photos) and what appears to be a blood stain on the collar. A lovely keepsake from a true boxing legend.
