50 years ago, a tough talking 22-year-old named Cassius Clay stunned the boxing world by beating the bruising heavyweight champ, Sonny Liston. Now, those same gloves that Muhammad Ali wore to take the title can be yours.

Heritage Auctions presents one of the greatest pieces of sports memorabilia one can even think of. These gloves come from the personal collection of Hall of Fame trainer Angelo Dundee, Ali’s corner man that night. On each wrist is written “Clay Feb. 25 KO Liston.” Each glove also bears the label of manufacturer, “Sammy Frager” at the wrist, and they match up perfectly with the footage from that landmark fight. The original lacing remains intact, and the leather of the gloves is said to still be soft and supple. The late Dundee also autographed each interior wrist. Watch the video below to relive the fight.
