In July of 1971, Muhammad Ali fought his childhood friend Jimmy Ellis at the Astrodome in Houston.  Both fighters trained by Angelo Dundee, with Ellis once serving as Ali's sparring partner.  Ali won the fight by TKO in the 12th round.

Pictured just before the fight in the July 26, 1971 issue of Sports Illustrated, a healthy-looking Ali glares at the camera.  Signed by the Champ in blue sharpie across his forehead, the cover presents very well, with minimal creasing and edge wear but some minor stains and paper loss in various locations.  The address label is still attached.  Memorabilia related to Ali is highly desirable and widely collected, and this publication should be no exception.  An outstanding signature with exceptional visual appeal.  COA from SGC Authentic.
