Description

"Ken Norton and Ali Ticket" Must-Have Sports Photo Collage Hand-Autographed by Ken Norton (1943-2013), with Certificate.

A must-have photo collage commemorating the monumental boxing matches between Mohammad Ali and Ken Norton, "Ken Norton and Ali Ticket" is hand-autographed by Norton (1943-2013)! Includes Certificate of Authenticity! Measures approx. 12" x 14" (no border).

Ken “Jawbreaker” Norton (1943-2013) standing a solid 6' 2 ¾", 220lbs, made boxing history in 1973 when he met Muhammad Ali for the North American Boxing Federation title, and won, breaking Ali's jaw in the process.

Norton's professional ring career began in 1967 at the age of 23 - he won 16 straight bouts before being knocked out by Jose Luis Garcia. Soon afterward, he read Napoleon Hill’s motivational book “Think and Grow Rich” which he said changed his whole way of thinking and how he approached boxing. It was six years later that he finally got his shot at the title. Going up against Ali in that famous 1973 fight, Norton seized the opportunity and won, in what boxing experts call one of the most memorable fights of all time.

That victory was followed the same year with another bout against Ali, and this time Norton lost a split decision. The two heavyweights met a final time in 1976, for the title, and Norton lost this bout in a highly disputed split decision. After a long and colorful career which included fights against Leon Spinks, George Foreman and Tex Cobb, Norton retired from boxing in 1981.

In retirement, Norton found joy in acting, appearing in a variety of movies and TV shows, and making public appearances, until a near-fatal car crash in 1986 left him with slurred speech. Overall, Norton fought 50 fights, winning 42, (33 by knockout), with 7 loses and 1 draw. Ken Norton was inducted into the World Boxing Hall of Fame (1989), the International Boxing Hall of Fame (1992), the United States Marine Corps Sports Hall of Fame (2004), and finally, the World Boxing Council Hall of Fame (2008).

Ken Norton passed away September 18, 2013 at the age of 70 after a series of strokes and a long illness.

Born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr. on 17 January 1942 in Louisville, Kentucky, Muhammad Ali carries the legacy of one of the world’s greatest heavyweight boxers. His interest in boxing began when, at twelve years old, his bike was stolen; he wanted to beat up the thief, so he began training. A natural talent, he soon won the 1956 Golden Gloves Championship as a novice in the light heavyweight and it wasn’t long before he qualified for the U.S. Olympic Boxing Team. Ali brought home the light heavyweight gold medal from the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome. For the next decade he was an unstoppable force in the ring and in 1964 he won the World Heavyweight Championship.

1964 was also the year that Ali found inspiration in the Nation of Islam and changed his name from Clay to Ali. His spiritual and political views eventually got himself in trouble in the ring; when he refused to fight in the Vietnam War in 1967, citing his status as a conscientious objector, the boxing association revoked his championship title and suspended him from professional boxing for three years. Upon his return to the sport in 1970, Ali reestablished his place in the boxing hierarchy during the next decade. In 1971 he battled Joe Frazier in “The Fight of the Century” and although he was knocked out after 15 rounds, Ali bested Frazier in a rematch in 1974. That same year he reclaimed his championship title in the “Rumble in the Jungle” in Zaire against the reigning World Heavyweight champion, George Foreman. After countless excellent battles in the boxing ring over the next few years, Leon Spinks defeated Ali in 1978, marking the beginning of the decline of Ali’s career. After losing his heavyweight title to Trevor Berbick in 1981, Ali retired from the sport.

Since his retirement, Ali has remained involved in the sport in addition to his great philanthropic efforts. Among these are his support of the Special Olympics and the Make a Wish Foundation, as well as the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center (he announced that he had the disease in 1984) and international relief efforts. In addition to this, the accolades have continued to pour in over the years: in 1999, Ali was crowned "Sportsman of the Century" by Sports Illustrated and "Sports Personality of the Century" by the BBC. Ali will always be regarded as one of the greatest professional boxers in the world, the one who was known to “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.”

Muhammad Ali passed away on June, 3rd 2016 at the age of 74.
