Just a couple months after returning home from the 1960 Olympic Games with the gold medal, Cassius Marcellus Clay would sign these Everlast EP16’s and turn pro on October 29, 1960. Offered are the very first Cassius Clay pro-fight worn gloves in existence. A hint of things to come, Clay decisioned his opponent, Tunney Hunsaker in Louisville, KY. on that day, and proceeded to win his next 18 bouts (15 by KO). These highly desirable items from The Greatest are delightfully signed with the rare full name and date on the right glove, “Good Luck, Cassius Marcellus Clay, Oct. 19-60” in black ink. Left glove is signed by his first victim, “Best to you, Tunny Hunsaker. Gloves show nice use and are completely intact with original laces. Signatures, obtained during the press conference are highly prominent, grading “9” out of a possible 10.
