More than 100 pieces of boxing memorabilia from the estate of the Muhammad Ali’s longtime trainer Angelo Dundee (who passed away in Feb.) sold at an auction this past weekend. Check out what was sold and for how much after the jump…
The gloves that Muhammad Ali wore in his Feb. 25, 1964 bout against Sonny Liston, when he was known as Cassius Clay and won the heavyweight championship for the first time, and the gloves that he wore in his first fight of his epic trilogy with Joe Frazier on March 8, 1971, each sold for $385,848 in bidding that concluded Saturday.
Many other Ali items were also sold, including several pair of fight-worn gloves:
• A 1966 heavyweight championship defense against George Chuvalo: $66,734.

• A 1970 fight with Oscar Bonavena: $31,129.

Dundee also trained Sugar Ray Leonard, and the gloves he wore when he beat Roberto Duran in their famous “No mas” welterweight championship rematch in 1980 sold for $34,243.
