EARNIE SHAVERS - AUTOGRAPH QUOTATION ON PHOTOGRAPH SIGNED - HFSID 341888
The hard-hitting boxer signs this photograph wherein he is seen inside the ring with his gloves on
Autograph quotation on photograph signed: "Ali said 'Shavers hit me so hard, it/shook my kin folk in Africa' Earnie/Shavers'", in gold felt tip, 8x10, color. Earnie Shavers (1944-2022), was a devastating one-punch knockout artist. He wasn't overly quick or agile and didn't take a great punch, but he had the best one-punch power in the history of boxing. It was just a matter of whether or not he could get the punch home, which he usually did. Although he never held the title, he fought the likes of Muhammad Ali and Larry Holmes in the 1970s and 1980s. Known as "The Acorn Black Destroyer", Shavers retired in 1983 after retinal problems were discovered in his eyes. Fine condition.
