Classic boxing broadside touts the February 23, 1963, Middleweight Championship rematch between Dick Tiger and Gene Fullmer. Measuring 14x22", the cardboard poster has images of each fighter in promoting the bout at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This is from the second of three bouts between the top Middleweights - the final three of Fullmer's career - with Tiger having won the title by 15-round unanimous decision in October of '62, the fight from this poster, going to a 15-round draw, and the finale going to Tiger when his foe didn't answer the bell for the 7th round. In superb condition for its age, some foxing is evident to the white border with only minor stains present, still bright and colorful.
