Three time World Heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali is one of the most iconic figures of the 20th century. Born Cassius Clay in a poor district of Louisville, Kentucky in 1942, he fought his way to the very top of the sport.

In the mid-1960s he converted to Islam and became a key figure in the civil rights movement. His refusal to fight in Vietnam in 1966 saw him stripped of his titles and banned from boxing. Four years later he made an astonishing comeback, eventually regaining the heavyweight title in 1974.

Ali retired from boxing in 1981 and devoted the rest of his life to humanitarian work. He died in June 2016.

A souvenir programme from Mike Barrett's International Professional Boxing Tournament with Muhammad Ali at the Royal Albert Hall on October 19th, 1971.

Signed by Muhammad Ali on the front cover in black felt tip.

In fine condition, with its original wrappers and light handling wear.

Programme measure approx. 18.5 by 25.5cm.

The event marked Muhammad Ali's first professional appearance at the Royal Albert Hall, as part of a promotional tour of England.

He fought eight unscored exhibition rounds against four boxers on the night: Alonzo Johnson, Johnny Frankham, Graham Sines, and Cliff Field.

An excellent collector's item from one of Ali's most famous appearances in the U.K.
