Foreign tickets for Ali fights are rare and this example is no exception. This is the ONLY example of this particular full ticket graded at this level by PSA, with just one graded higher. It is also one of only three examples listed in the PSA Population Report. This ticket was culled from the #1 Ranked Muhammad Ali Ticket Collection on the PSA Registry, which is being offered as a "set break" in our Spring Classic 2022 auction. Listed on the PSA Registry as "Muhammad Ali On-Site Ticket Collection," the collection is 74.60% complete with a Weighted GPA of 11.56. Lewis was one of Ali's long-time sparring partners and he also sparred with George Foreman.
