Muhammad Ali was without question an American icon. The holder of a 50-6 career record in the ring, plain numbers cannot do justice to Ali’s impact as a sportsman, a celebrity, and an activist. Ali changed the parameters of what it meant to be an athlete, opening the door to a new generation of celebrity sportsmen. The Greatest of All Time, Ali’s unquestioned skill and ferocity in the ring led to countless accolades, with more than one outlet naming him the “Greatest Athlete of the 20th Century.”

Ali wore these approximate size XL white boxing trunks between 1972 and 1981 during his training at Deer Lake camp in Pennsylvania. From 1972 until his retirement in 1981, Ali compiled a record of 22-4, including victories over Ken Norton (twice), George Foreman, Joe Frazier and Leon Spinks. The body of these trunks are white satin with black waistband and trim running down each side. The EVERLAST label with “Made expressly for Muhammad Ali” is sewn to the front center of the waistband. The trunks show moderate to heavy use with some fading on the waistband due to use and laundering. These trunks come with a LOA from MEARS and a letter of provenance from Martin Jacobs, who attests in his letter that Ali presented him with this pair of trunks (along with a robe) for the Sands Hotel Hall of Fame Museum in Las Vegas..
