FLOYD PATTERSON and INGEMAR JOHANSSON. Photograph signed: "Ingemar Johansson" and "May your New Year/be filled with health and happiness./Your friend, Floyd Patterson". B/w, 9¾x7½ overall, montage of four different images, each 4½x3½ (one surface). Photographs depict portions of the title rematch between Patterson and Johansson at the Polo Grounds in New York City on June 20, 1960. Imprinted caption at lower margin. Patterson has dated his signature: "1985". In this second of three fights that matched Patterson and European champion Ingemar Johansson in the battle for the World Heavyweight Championship, Patterson won by a KO in the fifth round, regaining the title he had lost to Johansson in their first meeting at Yankee Stadium on June 26, 1959. Patterson went on to beat Johansson for a second time (with a sixth round KO) in their last meeting at the Miami Convention Hall on March 13, 1961. Images slightly grainy. Minor surface striations at upper background of upper photographs. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 16x21½.
