Rare full Ticketron ticket (6.5x2") issued for the Heavyweight Championship bout between champion Muhammad Ali and Chuck Wepner, held at the Richfield Coliseum in Richfield, Ohio, on March 24, 1975. Graded GOOD 2 by PSA. This is the ONLY example of this particular Ticketron ticket stub 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. The bout against Wepner was Ali's first title defense after defeating George Foreman in the famous "Rumble in the Jungle." Although Ali battered Wepner for fifteen rounds before knocking him out, the fight was notable because it marked one of only four times in which Ali was knocked down in a professional fight. The bout was also purported to be the inspiration for Sylvester Stallone's classic boxing film "Rocky."
