1970 Joe Frazier vs. Jimmy Ellis On-Site Fight Poster
In 1967, Heavyweight Champion Muhammad Ali was stripped of his title for refusing induction into the armed services. The 1964 Olympic Heavyweight Gold Medalist Joe Frazier emerged as the best of a group of up-and-coming heavyweights during this period (1967-1970) when Ali was forced into retirement. Frazier won the New York version of the Heavyweight Title on March 4, 1968, stopping Buster Mathis in 11 rounds. He defended that title four times. On February 16, 1970, Frazier met Jimmy Ellis at New York's Madison Square Garden to determine the new Heavyweight Champion. Ellis could not stand up to Frazier's onslaught and was stopped in five rounds. Here is a very scarce, on-site poster for this event. Poster is a paper one-sheet on linen. VG.
