Muhammad Ali memorabilia set to make thousands

Iconic objects from the collection of Muhammad Ali's former agent Harlan Werner are to go under the hammer at Julien's Auctions on May 31.

Items of memorabilia from the boxing champion's celebrated career, including a signed robe and an amateur boxing trophy are expected to make tens of thousands when they auction online later this month.

The robe, worn by Ali during preparations for his final bout against Trevor Berbick in December 1981 is estimated to be worth $25,000-35,000, while the 1960 "Most Outstanding Boxer" trophy awarded to Ali at the American Athletic Union's boxing championships is anticipated to bring $20,000-30,000.

Consistently, Ali-related items have proven popular at auction. The boxing trunks the star wore during one of his most famous victories sold for $100,000 at Robert Edward Auctions earlier this month.  

Considered the greatest boxer to ever step into the ring, a pair of early training gloves signed "Cassius Clay" sold for $22,000 at a US auction in April 2010 - a striking 450% above their high estimate.                     

We currently have this Muhammad Ali signed photograph in stock, featuring the Beatles posing at his feet.
