Rare full ticket (6x2.5") issued for the Heavyweight Championship bout between champion Muhammad Ali and Cleveland Williams, held at the Astrodome, in Houston, Texas, on November 14, 1966. Graded EX 5 by PSA. This is one of only two examples of this particular ticket graded at this level by PSA, with NONE graded higher. It is also one of only four full 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. Ali was in top form for this bout, dominating the hard-hitting Williams throughout before earning a technical knockout in the third round. A then-record indoor crowd of 34,460 witnessed the bout, which helps explain the rarity of full-ticket examples today.
