This is an on site poster for the postponed fight between World
Middleweight Champion Joey Giardello and top contender Rubin
“Hurricane” Carter scheduled for October 23, 1964 in Las Vegas. The
fight was actually fought on December 14, 1964 in Philadelphia with
Giardello successfully defending his title winning a 15 round
decision. Carter was later arrested and convicted of murder in one of
the most controversial murder cases of the 20th century. This is a
14 x 22” cardboard poster which has been signed in black sharpie by
Joey Giardello. It is in excellent condition with bold color, slight
edge and corner wear and minor staining. A rare poster featuring the infamous Rubin Carter.
