1976 Sugar Ray Leonard v Andres Aldama on-site ticket (Olympic Gold Medal match)
A rare ticket to the boxing finals at the 1976 Montreal Olympics. The gold medal matches were contested on the evening of the 31st July 1976 at the Forum, Montreal. In the final of the light welterweight division a young Ray Leonard met Cuban knockout artist Andres Aldama (who had KO'd all his opponents en route to the final). In the 2nd round Leonard dropped Aldama with a left to the chin. Late in the final round, he again hurt Aldama, bringing a standing eight count from the referee. With only a few seconds left in the fight, a Leonard combination forced a third standing count. Leonard was awarded a 5–0 decision and the Olympic Gold Medal. The ticket is in very good condition with a vertical center crease. The lower left corner was clipped upon entry to the arena.
