The great Muhammad Ali wore and used these 12-ounce boxing gloves during training in the late 1960’s. The gloves originated from Angelo Dundee, Ali’s trainer and a boxing legend in his own right, who gifted the training gloves to the Canadian boxer Phil Palmer, who in turn gave the gloves to a church raffle in the leadup to the second Muhammad Ali fight against George Chuvalo. Ali and Chuvalo fought in Vancouver on May 1st, 1972, with Ali winning the fight via unanimous decision. The judges scored the bout 59-51, 60-46, and 58-51 as Ali defended his NABF Heavyweight title for the second time. Ali has signed the left-hand glove in white grease marker. The inscription “4-22-72” beneath his signature has been penned in an unknown hand. Chuvalo has signed the right glove in white grease marker, with a similar inscription in an unknown hand located below his signature.

These offered Everlast gloves weight 12 ounces each and were likely used for bag work by Ali during training in the late 1960’s before 1968. The gloves are well worn, with several tears in the leather present. The interior is horse hair and an Everlast tag is sewn on each wrist. These gloves come with a LOA from Craig Hamilton for use and a LOA from JSA (Z59985) for the signatures.
