1962 Dick Tiger v Gene Fullmer on-site poster (7" x 22")
Dick Tiger met Gene Fullmer at Candlestick Park, San Francisco on October 16, 1962. It was the first of three fights the two would contest over the course of a year. Tiger defeated Fullmer by unanimous decision after fifteen rounds. The fight was for the newly named WBA Middleweight Title (formerly called NBA) which Fullmer had successfully defended seven times prior to his meeting with Tiger. The on-site poster was issued in several formats. This is the 7" x 22" version featuring an image of Dick Tiger. It has been laid down onto a piece of solid board (strong card). The poster has several horizontal fold lines and a date change sticker affixed to the bottom. The fight date was changed a couple of times and actually took place on October 23rd, one week later than advertised on the poster. Please note this poster will be shipped flat.
