Undefeated pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. had an unbelievable 50-0 professional record. Mayweather began his professional boxing journey with a TKO win against Robert Apodaca in Las Vegas in October of 1996, amassing 49 more wins capped off by a victory over mixed martial arts legend Conor McGregor in the Irish firebrand’s boxing debut. Mayweather came onto the boxing scene by making the 1996 US Olympic team, where he earned a bronze medal. Many believe he was robbed of a chance at gold when he lost controversially on points 10-9 during his semi-final bout against Bulgarian boxer Serarfim Todorov.

Mayweather, nevertheless, was able to parlay his performance in the 1996 Games to one of the best professional boxing careers of all-time. Offered here is the red tank top used by Mayweather during his 1996 Olympics Featherweight fight against Artur Gevorgyan. Mayweather dominated this Round of 16 bout, decisively beating Gevorgyan of Armenia 16-3 in points and advancing to the quarterfinals. This is a wonderful opportunity to own a match-worn item from Mayweather’s amateur career.

This Adidas tank top is a red mesh with white and blue trim. The Adidas size M tag is sewn on the inside back collar with the front having the Adidas vertical white stripes running from top to bottom, along with “adidas” printed in white and black on the upper right chest and the “USA BOXING” and logo printed on the upper left.

Hamilton, who states in his LOA “It is my opinion this boxing shirt was worn by Floyd Mayweather, Jr. in his 1996 Olympic Games fight with Artur Gevorgyan.
