Full ticket (9.75x2.75") issued for the heavyweight bout between Muhammad Ali and Mac Foster, held at Nippon Budokan Hall in Tokyo, Japan, on April 1, 1972. Graded EX 5 (MK) by PSA. Foreign tickets for Ali fights, especially full examples, are rare and this example is no exception. This is one of only six examples of this particular full ticket listed in the PSA Population Report. The ticket displays a Japanese stamp on the reverse which has been crossed out in red marker, which is the reason for the "MK" qualifier. 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. The bout against Mac Foster was the fourth for Ali following his loss to Joe Frazier in "The Fight" less than a year earlier. Ali upped his winning streak to four by defeating Foster in a fifteen-round unanimous decision.
