On March 24, 1975 World Heavyweight Champion Muhammad Ali defended his title against the "Bayonne Bleeder" Chuck Wepner at the Cleveland Coliseum in Ohio. It was a one sided fight, but Wepner's enduring performance inspired the creation of the Rocky movies. Ali won by TKO in the 15th round.

This is original cartoon art on artist paper which is signed by the artist. Bold, clear images and print. Terrific likenesses. Notations on border. Clean front and back. Not creased or torn. 12 1/2" x 15."
