On March 8, 1961 heavyweight contenders Sonny Liston and Howard King would fight a scheduled ten round bout at the Miami Beach Auditorium. These two had met once earlier with Liston coming out on top stopping King in 8 rounds the year prior to this fight. Liston was now a star in the division and he showed it here stopping King in round three. Presented here is a very rare official program to the event. It has been signed on the reverse by Max Schmeling who was in attendance.
This official program is two pages including the bout sheet. Unscored, it lists all the events on the card including the Liston-King match. The program has no rips, tears or writing. It has a number of creases from being folded. Printed on heavy stock paper. Oversized, 8 1/2" x 13 1/2". Extremely rare, the only copy I have seen.

Size: 8 1/2 x 13 1/2

Condition: very good
