Tough, tough to find pieces recently discovered near the original venue of the classic Ali-Liston rematch. Originally scheduled for the Boston Garden, the venue was switched to Lewiston, Maine. On the eve of the Boston fight, Ali suffered a hernia injury, rendering the Garden booking no longer available. This find includes the rare ticket featuring images of the fighters, string-holed “Dressing Room” pass in white cardboard (3x3”), and also rare unused ticket for the weigh-in, two pieces of yellow stationery picturing both fighters, folded press release announcing the fight at the Boston Garden and the closed-circuit “Referee Magazine program. All are NRMT or better and list the Boston Garden as the venue.
