Champion’s Belt of the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali will be put up for auction in the U.S. The organizers hope to raise no less than $600,000 for one item. Also other items that belonged to or somehow connected with the career of the great boxer will be auctioned. The auction will also include the trunks, Ali wore for his fight with George Foreman in 1974, as well as the champion’s letter, in which he talks about his conversion to Islam and changing his birth name – Cassius Clay. The auction will take place on September 10. In total, there will be 79 lots. Muhammad Ali died on June 3 this year at the age of 75. He had been suffering from Parkinson’s disease for more than 30 years. In 1999, he received the ‘Personality of the Century’ award.

 

KATHLEEN GUZMAN, MANAGING DIRECTOR AT HERITAGE AUCTIONS NEW YORK:

One of the highlights among many highlights of the auction, one of the things that we are mostly excited about is the original letter in his hand on February 18, that he wrote in 1964.
