1973 Tony Zale Handwritten Letter of Exasperation to Rocky Graziano

1973 Tony Zale Handwritten Letter of Exasperation to Rocky Graziano

This handwritten two-page letter from Tony Zale to Rocky Grarziano has the most amazing content from these two fighters who are already intertwined in boxing history. These three bouts were among the most brutal and exciting Middleweight Championship matches of all time, occurring within a 21-month period right after WWII (1946-48). On Tony Zale stationary the content is all about these three matches, Tony Zale was promised copies of films from Graziano for the three fights he had with him and has not sent them as promised. "Some years ago you told me you have films of our three fights. Of course...you would give me copies of the first two...there is a guy here in Chicago who has all three fight films, and here I am one of the contestants and I have nothing but the last one... You faithfully promised, that you would be sure I got them from you but, no nothing... You won't go back on your promise and renege will you?... I expect you would treat me with more appreciation." He also talks about the wives meeting in NY but then brings it up again which is actually quite endearing and amusing. "I hate to be repetitious, but do make it a definite point to get these films to me. You know the boss!!!" Comes with a Tony Zale envelope and condition is NRMT. With a COA from PSA.
