Description

The late 1960s witnessed a shake-up in heavyweight boxing ranks as champion Muhammad Ali was forced to vacate his titles. During this era Jimmy Ellis and Joe Frazier took the lead as World’s Heavyweight Champions. Presented are two unique boxer-manager agreements featuring both of these greats.The first is a 1973 agreement between Ellis and legendary manager and cornerman Angelo Dundee, signed by both men; each grade (“9-10”). The second is a 1980 agreement between Marvis Frazier and his father Smokin’ Joe, once again, signed by both with signatures grading (“9-10”). Both contracts detail the length and specifics of the terms of agreement, also bearing the signatures of a witness and a New York State Athletic Commission representative. The lot is rounded out by a pair of signed 8x10 photos, one penned Smokin’ Joe Frazier grading a (“9”) and the other signed by champions Floyd Patterson (d.2006) and Ellis, grading (“10”) and (“8”) respectively. Contracts measure 8-1/2 x 14. COA from James Spence Authentications.
