The former heavy weight boxer takes a fierce blow from the legendary Muhammad Ali
Photograph Signed: "Chuck Wepner," in silver felt tip pen. Color, 10x8. Chuck Wepner (b.1939) is a retired professional boxer who is most known for his fight with the legendary Muhammad Ali where Ali served him a TKO in the 15th round. During the fight, Wepner got a rare chance and knocked down Ali in the 8th round. Ali went back in the ring and whipped Wepner fiercely, cutting gashes into his face and eyes. Wepner took a beating, however he still received his guaranteed $100,000 after the fight. It was this fight that inspired Sylvester Stallone to write the script for Rocky. Later in life, Wepner would get involved in a scheme to sell counterfeit Muhammad Ali memorabilia for which he and his partner in crime, John Olson, were arrested by the FBI and received probation in 2002. The scam was featured in the book, Operation Bullpen (Kevin Nelson). Fine condition.
