Floyd Patterson Fight-Worn Robe (1972-His Last Fight)

Floyd Patterson Fight-Worn Robe (1972-His Last Fight)

On September 20, 1972 at Madison Square Garden in New York, Muhammad Ali defended his NABF Title against former Heavyweight Champion Floyd Patterson. These two met for the first time in 1965 and there was bad blood from it. Ali had taunted Patterson before ending the contest. As for this fight, Floyd did better than during his first bout with Ali. The former "Cassius Clay" took Floyd lightly and showed some mercy, but Floyd displayed flashes of his old self whenever he got close enough to land his bombs. He stunned Ali on several occasions and got the crowd excited. Ali, still the dominant fighter, stopped Patterson in the 7th round. This was the last fight in the illustrious career of Floyd Patterson. Offered here is the original robe he wore that night. This robe is dark blue velour and full length, it includes the original sash, three pockets on the front and openings at the wrists for the gloves. There is no hood. Manufacturer's label in collar for Travelman's Beverly Hills. On the back in white script is simply stitched, "Floyd." Shows mild wear and is perfectly intact. From the collection of Floyd Patterson, it comes with a letter of authenticity from the Patterson family and from Craig Hamilton of JO Sports, Inc., who researched the robe for this sale.
