1963 Cassius Clay v Henry Cooper on-site program & ticket
On June 18, 1963 Cassius Clay met Henry Cooper in a fight billed as an "Eliminating Contest for the Heavyweight Championship of the World". The contest took place at Wembley Stadium in London, England. Cooper knocked Clay down in the 4th round, but the brash youngster regrouped and came on strong to force the stoppage in the fifth. Offered here are the official program and a scarce on-site ticket. The ticket is printed on thin paper stock and is an excellent example. It has a light centre crease and two staple holes from where it was previously attached to the program. The program is in G-VG condition. There's a one inch split at the top of the spine and a very thin strip of transparent tape has been applied to the lower half of the spine inside the front cover (barely visible). Clean and unscored inside.
