The "Sweet Science" doles out a bit of sugar with this 1982 heavyweight boxing championship bout ticket from Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. On 6/11/82 longtime champ Larry Holmes successfully defended his title by stopping a game but fairly inexperienced Gerry Cooney in the 13th round of a scheduled 15-round match.

Measuring 6-1/4 x 10-1/2", this professionally mounted piece centers a 3 x 7-1/2" ticket from this memorable fight, with all elements presenting like-new. The yellow frame and black matting compliment the ticket's design, which is highlighted by an art image of the two combatants that was created by celebrated artist Leroy Neiman. Amping up the value of this sweet boxing souvenir is the presence of (3) autographs, with Holmes ("9"), Cooney ("6-7") and Neiman ("9-10"). Auction LOA from JSA.
